Polling Location Changes
Because of polling location changes, new voter identification cards were mailed to City of Midland voters registered in Ward 1 Precincts 3, 5, and 6 and in Ward 3 Precincts 2 and 4 in August 2013. The following polling places were relocated to larger, more visible locations:
  • Ward 1 Precincts 3, 5, and 6, which historically voted at the Midland Civic Arena, will now vote at the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 3651, which is located at 3013 Bay City Road in Midland.
  • Ward 3 Precincts 2 and 4, which historically voted at the American Legion Berryhill Post 165, will now vote at Calvary Baptist Church, located at 6100 Perrine Road in Midland.
  • All other polling locations remained the same. Voters affected by the polling location changes should have received new voter identification cards in the mail during September 2013.
A City ward map shows all polling locations throughout the City of Midland.
