Welcome to the Bloomfield Township Clerk’s Office!
Our office offers numerous support services for residents, including, but not limited to: voter registration, elections, passports, recordkeeping, notary, neighborhood association contacts, and liquor and auction licenses.
On October 1, 2020 the federal government will fully enforce the post-9/11 REAL ID Act, and standard state-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards will no longer be accepted to board domestic flights within the United States, or when entering certain federal facilities, such as military bases or nuclear power plants. For more information click here.
With the passage of Proposal 3 in November 2018, Michigan voters are enjoying new voter registration rights and no-reason absentee voting. Check out both new options here. This link also provides access to a Michigan Voter Registration form, an Absentee Ballot Application, and a Federal Post Card Application for military and overseas voters.
New requests to be on the permanent absentee list are included in all current absentee voter requests. Being on the list enables you to automatically receive an application for an absent voter ballot. Upon return of the application, you will be given an absentee ballot, either in person or by mail. We encourage you to take advantage of the ease and efficiency of voting absentee.

Our passport services afford Township travelers a convenient one-stop shop for passport applications, photos, and special forms. In 2005, the Clerk’s Office was designated as a passport acceptance facility, a federal distinction governed by the U.S. Department of State. Click here for passport information.
In addition to these duties, the Clerk’s Office is charged with numerous record keeping responsibilities. The Clerk is the official keeper of all Township records, including the Zoning Ordinance and the General Ordinances. Minutes and agendas for the Board of Trustees and Lake Improvement Boards are prepared by the Clerk’s Office. Applications for liquor licenses, solicitation, fireworks, going-out-of-business, wetland, wireless, and right-of-way permits are available in this office. The Clerk also serves as the Freedom of Information Coordinator and as member and chairperson on the Township Election Commission.
The Clerk’s Office responds to a myriad of miscellaneous questions from residents. Some frequently asked questions concern garage sales, public meeting space, and subdivision deed restrictions. Bloomfield Township does not require a permit for garage sales, but limits such sales to one-a-year per household. The Township auditorium is available for homeowner association meetings and can be scheduled through the Clerk’s Office. The Township cannot defend subdivision deed restrictions. The Oakland County Register of Deeds office can provide a copy of specific deed restrictions upon request.
The Clerk’s Office is at your service.
