For the November 5, 2019, General Election there will be three City Council seats open; Mayor Waligora, Councilmember Nielsen, and Councilmember Nowak. The nominating petitions must be filed no later than 4 p.m. on July 23, 2019. For more information and to pick up a petition please stop in the City Clerk's office located at City Hall.
Some situations, such as a voter who has moved or changed his/her name, could cause the voter’s name to be inadvertently removed from the QVF precinct list. The Clerk’s Office maintains all voters in a master card file and is checked when missing voters are brought to our attention. If you have not voted within the last few years, please call the Clerk’s Office to check that you are registered and entered correctly into our system.
You can register to vote at the Secretary of State’s branch office, the County Clerk’s Office, or the City Clerk’s Office.
If you are not sure if you are registered to vote, please call the City of Alpena Clerk’s Office at 989.354.1720.
I’ve moved – where do I vote?
When you move out of the city, you must register in your new city or township. If the move was within 60 days of the election, you are entitled to vote at your old precinct; but you must sign a cancellation form at that time. Also helpful is the Secretary of State's new voter information web site: www.michigan.gov/sos
When and where do I register to vote?
I registered, why can’t I vote?
I'm not sure if I am registered , how do I find out?
I think I live within the city limits and may possibly be registered in the City but I'm not sure, how do I check this out?
I've misplaced my Voter Identification Card, am I able to get a replacement even though I have not moved?
