Absent Voter Ballots

Ballots for the November 3, 2020 General Election


We are aware that there has been a postcard circulating that the ballots are available on Saturday, September 19, 2020.  This is not true.  The only ballots available on this day are for the military and overseas civilians. 


The regular ballots will be available and mailed on September 24, 2020.  Please see the message below from an article that Governor Whitmer sent out on September 16, 2020.


“Whitmer encouraged those who choose to vote from home to avoid possible U.S. Postal Service delays by mailing their ballots back as soon as possible, or hand delivering them to their local election clerk’s office or ballot drop box. Starting Sept. 24 local election clerk offices will send absentee ballots to voters and have them available for early in-person voting. Whitmer also noted that Michigan citizens who are not registered and do not have a state ID or driver’s license can register at their local election clerk’s office.”
