Precincts

The City of Portage is split into 19 precincts, each with its own polling location.  All voters are assigned a voting precinct when they register.  This location can be found on your voter identification card.  Unless you vote absentee, you must vote at your polling location on Election Day. Polls are open from 7 a.m. - 8 p.m. for every election.

The Michigan Voter Information Center is a great resource for all voters. You can easily find your precinct, polling location, drop boxes, and much more. 

Step 1) Visit the Michigan Voter Information Center at michigan.gov/vote.MVIC

Step 2) Search for Your Voter Information.  On the home page, click the "Where is my polling place?" link under the Your Voter Information heading. This is under the first green box with the person icon in it.  Enter your first name, last name, birth month, birth year, zip code, and then search.

Step 3) Review Your Information - The search results will show your precinct and polling location. They will also show drop box locations, hours, and clerk contact information
