MI Voter Information Center (MVIC)

The Michigan Voter Information Center (MVIC), is a one-stop site to check and verify just about every voter practice necessary for individuals: voter registration, absentee ballot application and tracking, finding your voting precinct, and previewing your ballot.

You can also find information about becoming an Election Inspector. It is imperative that we have well-trained citizens working our voting precincts and processing ballots to ensure every citizen's voice is heard on Election Day!

LWV Online Voter Guide: Vote411

The LWV online voter guide is a great resource to get personalized information.


When you enter your address, the system will take you to see your ballot (where we have an active League) and see responses from candidates. Candidates are asked to share biographical information, campaign information, and respond to questions that we feel will help you make an informed decision on your ballot.


You can also verify your registration status, precinct location and number, and more.  

This site is active in the 30 days prior to an upcoming election.
