Voters who already have a ballot at home are encouraged to fill it out, sign the back of the envelope, and return it as soon as possible. Ballots may be mailed, returned via the township drop box, or brought in person to the inside locked drop box in the township office.
With one week until Election Day, visiting the clerk’s office is the fastest way to be issued an absent voter ballot, which can be voted and returned to the clerk in the same visit. Applications for absent voter ballots are also available at Michigan.Gov/Vote.
Those residents who haven’t registered can register and vote in one trip to the clerk’s office now through 8 p.m. on Election Day, August 4. Proof of residency is required. Since we are within two weeks of the election, registration can no longer be done online or by mail without an additional visit to the clerk’s office. For added convenience, the clerk will hold additional office hours on Saturday, August 1st from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
All registered voters may choose to vote by mail or in person, and both options are absolutely safe and secure.
