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 late spring/early summer. 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.
