Who can absentee vote in Michigan?

A voter may vote by mail by absentee ballot if he/she:

  •     Cannot vote without help; or
  •     Is age 60 or older; or
  •     Plans to be away from his/her city or township on election day; or
  •     Is in jail, waiting for arraignment or trial; or
  •     Will be working as a precinct inspector in a precinct other than where he/she is registered; or
  •     Can't go to the polls because of religious beliefs.

How can I acquire an Absentee Ballot?

Those wishing to vote by absentee ballot should fill out an absentee ballot application and return it to the city or township clerk. A reason for requesting an absentee ballot must be provided and the request must be signed. City Hall will be open the Saturday prior to any election from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the purpose of issuing absentee ballots.  If a voter is allowed to vote by absentee ballot, he/she may also choose to vote in person at the clerk's office anytime up to 4 p.m. the day before the election.

Voters must ask for a new absentee ballot for each election. Those who know before the primary that they won't be able to vote in person at the general election can request an absentee ballot for both of these elections at the same time.

How do I return the Absentee Ballot and What is the Deadline?

All absentee ballots must be hand-delivered or mailed to the clerk's office. In order to be counted, the ballots must be received by 8:00 p.m. on election day.
