Michigan voters should be aware of a number of important changes to election processes before heading to the polls this year.

Starting with the presidential primary on Tuesday, Feb. 27, the state will require at least nine days of early voting for statewide and federal elections.

Michigan lawmakers passed a series of election laws in 2023 to implement changes voters approved in a 2022 ballot initiative.

These include:

  • Requiring the state to fund drop boxes and prepaid stamps for absentee ballots.
  • Allowing voters to apply once for absentee ballots for future elections.
  • Requiring an electronic ballot tracking and notification system.
  • Requiring military and overseas ballots postmarked by election day to be counted if they are received up to six days after an election.

The Michigan primary for statewide offices is on Tuesday, Aug. 6, and the general election is Tuesday, Nov. 5. AARP recommends confirming voting details by going to Also find more election information at
