City Clerk Satellite Office @ UMMA and Duderstadt Center

In f​all 2020, the University of Michigan and City Clerk's Office partnered to provide a satellite clerk's office at the University of Michigan Museum of Art for the first time.

In fall 2022, the Clerk satellite office at UMMA returned and was supported by an additional satellite office servicing north campus at the Duderstadt Center.

A one-stop-shop for students, staff, and faculty to check their registration information, register to vote, and request an early ballot, the satellite offices provided an easily accessible location for students and residents in and around the University campuses!

In the 6 weeks leading up to the November 2020 Presidential election, 5,412 voters registered, and 8,501 ballots were collected at the UMMA satellite office!

In the 6 weeks leading up to the November 2022 Midterm election, 3,905 voters registered, and 4,608 ballots were collected at the two satellite offices!​
