How to Change Your Personal Information at a Michigan DMV

You must contact the Michigan Secretary of State (SOS) to report a change name or address. The change name and address are important for identification and mailing purposes. The change name will provide your correct identification to get a driver’s license or state ID to use to vote. Also, for you to receive all your mail at your most current address.
