Absentee Ballot Process- Request your ballot early and vote early!

Absentee voting is available and no excuse is required. Visit Michigan.gov/Vote to request an absentee ballot online.  It is best to complete your request at least 15 days prior to the election.  The last day to request an absentee ballot is 4 days before the election (October 30, 2020). 

Once you receive your ballot follow the instructions carefully and add correct postage if it is to be mailed.  The United States Postal Service recommends that you mail your ballot at least seven days before Election Day.  

You may also deliver your voted ballot in person.  Voted ballots must be received by Election Day to be counted.  Your ballot must be returned to your local election clerk’s office.
