When & How to Register 

The State of Michigan now has Online Voter Registration!  Just visit the Michigan Voter Information Center (MVIC) and select the “Register to Vote” option located on the left panel of the page.

You may also register to vote by visiting the Clerk’s Office at the Township Hall or any Secretary of State Branch Office.

Where Do I Vote?
In 2019, the Charter Township of Bedford adjusted our precincts to create an Absent Voter Counting Board (AVCB). This will alleviate congestion at the polls and create a more positive voting experience. All absentee ballots are now counted at the AVCB which is located at the township hall.
