Candice S. Miller (born May 7, 1954) is a Republican politician from the U.S. state of Michigan, currently representing Michigan's 10th congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives. The district stretches from the northeastern suburbs of Detroit all the way into the Michigan Thumb.

Miller was born in Detroit and graduated from Lakeshore High School in St. Clair Shores. She attended both Macomb Community College in Warren and Northwood University for Business Management. After several years working in business, she was the youngest trustee to serve on the Harrison Township Board from 1979–1980, and was Harrison Township supervisor from 1980 to 1992. She was treasurer of Macomb County, 1992–1994.

Miller was the Michigan Secretary of State from 1995 to 2003. She was the first Republican to serve as Secretary of State in Michigan in 40 years since Owen Cleary left office in 1955. In her re-election campaign to that office in 1998 she carried every county in Michigan (including Wayne County, home to Detroit) and won by 1 million votes — the largest margin of victory for a candidate running statewide in Michigan.
