City Clerk Satellite Office​​ @ UMMA

​In Fall of 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.​

A one-stop-shop for students, staff, and faculty to check their registration information, register to vote, and request an early ballot, the satellite office provided an easily accessible location for students in the heart of campus.

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