Elimination of "Must Vote in Person"
As of March 2019, the MI Secretary of State has eliminated the "must vote in person" requirement for first-time mail-in registrants (or if one registers with a group such as LWV without a clerk present).
This means new registrants/voters do not have to vote in person the first time voting. They can register at home and request an absentee ballot for their first election.
