2022 Upcoming Elections
- August 2nd (Primary Election)
- November 8th (State General Election)
IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR PRECINCT 3-23 VOTERS: It has come to our attention that the new Voter Information Cards sent a few weeks ago as a result of the 2020 Census and Redistricting contained an error in the polling location listed. Precinct 3-23, formerly Precinct 3-2, remains assigned to the Michigan League at 911 N. University. The cards mailed out this summer indicated the Michigan Union was the polling location and this information is incorrect. For voters in Precinct 3-23, if you are planning to vote tomorrow, Tuesday August 2, your polling location is the Michigan League and the polls are open from 7am to 8pm.
We apologize for this printing error and for the late notice as this error is just coming to our attention. Please contact our office with any questions. You can contact us at [email protected] or call us at 734-794-6140. Voters in this precinct should look for a replacement card in the mail in the next few weeks.
The City Clerk's Office will be open on Saturday, July 30 from 8am to 4pm for in-person voter registration and absentee ballot requests. Voters registering to vote within 14 days of an election will be
required to provide proof of residency.
The last day to register to vote by mail, or with any designated voter registration agency (e.g. County Clerk, Secretary of State Branch Office, etc.), for the August 2 election is Monday, July 18th. After this date, voters can still register in-person at the City Clerk's Office with proof of residency until 8:00 P.M. on Election Day.
Polling places are open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. on election day.

August 2, 2022 Primary Ballot Language
The August 2, 2022 Primary Election will be conducted for the purpose of voting for candidates seeking nomination to the following offices:
- U.S. Representative in Congress
- State Senator
- Representative in State Legislature
- County Commissioner
- City Council Member – Wards 1, 4, 5
And for the purpose of electing delegates to the county convention of the Democratic and Republican Parties,
And to vote on the following Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority Proposal:
PROPOSAL FOR MILLAGE TO MAINTAIN AND EXPAND PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
The proposal would authorize the Ann Arbor Transportation Authority (TheRide) to levy a property tax:
- to be used for public transportation purposes, including public transit and paratransit services for seniors and persons with disabilities;
- at a rate of 2.380 mills ($2.38 for each $1,000 in taxable value), replacing a current authorized millage of 0.700 that expires in 2023 and resulting in 1.680 in net new mills;
- for five years beginning in 2024 and continuing through 2028; and
- that may not be increased, renewed, or used for other purposes without voter approval.
If this new additional millage is approved and levied, revenue will be distributed to TheRide. It is estimated that $22,110,122.57 will be collected in the first year (2024).
Under current state law, the downtown development authorities of the cities of Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti, the local development finance authorities of the cities of Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti and of the Charter Township of Ypsilanti, and the Washtenaw County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority may capture and use for authorized purposes tax increment revenues from the millage, if approved.
Should this proposal be approved?

Redistricting update — New voter ID cards and new precinct numbers coming soon!
Ann Arbor's population has grown, and populations throughout the county and the state have also changed, according to the 2020 Census. As a result, some changes are now taking place with voting districts.
The Ann Arbor City Clerk's Office is finalizing the precinct changes that will take effect for the Aug. 2, 2022, Primary Election, stemming from the census and statewide redistricting. All Ann Arbor voters are now in U.S. Congressional District 6, and new State House and Senate districts have also been assigned to Ann Arbor. Some residents will also be assigned to a new County Commissioner District.
What does this mean to you as a voter? Most, but not all, voters will still vote at the same polling location, and this will also be indicated on your new voter ID card. For voters who have been reassigned to a new ward and/or precinct location, the card will clearly indicate this change for you. Watch for your new card in the mail in the coming weeks, well before the August Primary.
Same precinct locations, new numbers
All city voters should also be aware that the precincts have been renumbered, now in consistent chronological order (1-53). So while you may still be assigned the same precinct and polling location, the number may be slightly different. This new naming convention is a best practice and replaces the previous system of numbering each ward separately. For example, Ward 2, Precinct 1 is now Ward 2, Precinct 13, following the first twelve precincts in Ward 1.
Sound confusing? Not to worry — these changes will be provided to each registered voter on their new voter ID card being mailed to all city voters in mid-July. Still have questions? Contact the city clerk's office at 734.794.6140 or [email protected].
City residents can submit a voter registration form by mail, email, fax, or in-person any time prior to 15 days before an election date. During the 14 days prior to each election, voters will be required to register to vote in-person with the City Clerk's Office and provide proof of residency.
City residents can register to vote in-person at the City Clerk's Office during regular business hours. Registrations for upcoming elections can be made in-person at the City Clerk's Office through 8pm on Election Day.
Voter registration is also accepted at any Secretary of State Branch Office, the Washtenaw County Clerk's Office, designated state agencies such as Family Independence Agencies or military branch offices, as well as by mail, until 15 days before each election.
City residents who have moved within the City of Ann Arbor can update their address at any Secretary of State Branch Office, online at the Secretary of State's website, or in person at the City Clerk's Office.
