Sign up for the Permanent Absent Voter List
Residents must already be registered to vote in order to be put on list
It is now easier than ever to vote absentee in Novi. Recent law changes allow anyone to vote absentee without a reason.

Those who wish to be placed on the Permanent Absent Voter List must be registered to vote and can complete the application found here or call 248.347.0456 to be placed on the list.

Once you are on the list the City Clerk's Office will automatically mail you an application for an absentee ballot prior to each election. State Law requires the application be completed and returned prior to a ballot being issued.
