Voter Registration

Anyone who is 18 years of age may register to vote at the clerk's office in the city which they live in. They may also register at any Secretary of State office or local school. In order to vote, you must be registered 30 days prior to an election. Do you need to register to vote or a change of address form? Complete our Voter Registration Form (PDF), print it, and mail or bring it to the Royal Oak City Clerk's Office.
