Wow. Michigan does not require a copy of the Birth Certificate. Candidate's word and signature are good enough.

Dear Ms. Ruu,

Please be aware that the state central committee of each political party qualified to appear on the ballot certifies the names of its nominees for U.S. president and vice president to the secretary of state under the signatures of the chairperson and secretary of the committee. (See MCL 168.686) Copies of the nominees' birth certificates or birth records are not required. As a consequence, we are unable to resolve or respond to the issue raised in your e-mail.

Thank you for writing. Please do not hesitate to contact the department if you have any questions.
