If you receive mail for persons who are no longer living at your address or who are deceased, do not open it; please just write on the envelope “not at this address” or “deceased” and return to your mail carrier or the post office. They will return the mail to whoever sent it so they can correct their records.
Absentee Voter Information
Any registered voter can vote by absentee ballot at any time. Voters can request to be put on the permanent absentee ballot list which will trigger the automatic mailing of the application in advance of each election.
For more information about Absentee voting, visit the Michigan Voter Information Center.
Need to Apply for an Absentee Application, Ballot, or to be added to the Permanent Absentee Ballot List? Here are your options:
- Apply Online through the Michigan Voter Information Center
- Call the Township Clerk
- Download the absentee voter application form to return by mail, via the Township Hall Drop Box, or in person to the Township Clerk
- Apply in person at the Township Office
Receipt of Multiple Absentee Applications
You may receive more than one Absentee Application. The Township mails one to each person on our Permanent Absentee Voter List and to those who request them for individual elections. Often, the political parties send Absentee Applications, too.
What to do in the case of receiving multiple applications?
Just pick one and send it to the Township office. Even if we receive multiple applications, you will only receive one ballot.
Absentee Ballot Procedures
- If you decide you would rather vote in person on Election Day, you can surrender your absentee ballot at the Township office prior to Election Day or at the polls on Election Day, then you can vote in person on Election Day.
- Make sure you put your ballot back inside the secrecy sleeve before placing it in the return envelope.
- MAKE SURE YOU SIGN THE ENVELOPE! Ballots without signatures cannot be processed. If your signature does not match what we have on file for you, we may ask you to come into the office so we can verify your signature.
- Please return your ballot as soon as possible; with more absentee voters, we need more time to check them in.
