In late September, the Clerk’s Office will send absentee ballots to all residents who have requested them. The Clerk's Office will then continue to mail absentee ballots as new requests come in. If you would like to request an absentee ballot for the November 3, 2020 general election and have not yet done so, please visit mi.gov/vote or return your absentee ballot application to the drop box at City Hall.
The Clerk’s Office is happy to announce a new absentee ballot drop box will be coming soon! For your convenience, the box will be located at City Hall near the driveway entrance off of Henrietta. You will be able to simply drive up, deposit your ballot or ballot application, and be on your way.
If you prefer to mail your ballot, the postage is on us. All absentee ballots will have postage included on their return envelopes. The Clerk’s Office strongly encourages you to mail your ballot as soon as possible to ensure it is received by Tuesday, November 3, 2020.
Precinct Location Change
Precinct 6 voters who typically vote at City Hall will be directed to the Community House. This change was made because there is more room at the Community House to safely accommodate voters.
