Accessible Voting Equipment

Voter Assist Terminals are available to all voters. The terminal marks the voter's selections on paper that becomes their ballot.

These ballot marking devices come equipped with tools to assist in accommodations for hearing, visual, physical, and other disabilities.

Any registered voter can vote by mail with an absentee ballot. Voters needing an Absentee Ballot Application have the following options:

  • Online at Mi.gov/Vote
  • Request one from the City Clerk’s office (989) 837-3310 or Email
  • In-person at the City Clerk’s office
  • Voters with print disabilities may apply for an accessible electronic absent voter ballot that can be completed electronically, printed, and returned to the local clerk. Apply online at: Accessible Application website
  • Military and Overseas Civilians should complete the the Federal Post Card Application available at FVAP.gov 

Voters who have completed an application for the Permanent Absentee Ballot List will receive a Presidential Primary ballot selection form to be completed and returned to their Local Clerk’s Office before a Presidential Primary ballot can be mailed.

Voters who want to automatically be mailed a ballot for all future elections may complete an application (see above) and check the box to be added to the Permanent Absentee Ballot Mailing list. 

The Permanent Absentee Ballot Mailing list is not recommended at this time for voters who are not regularly at their permanent mailing address. Please contact the City Clerk's Office. 

Official Ballot Drop Boxes

The City of Midland has three official ballot drop boxes voters can use to return their absentee ballot applications or their absentee ballot.

  • Midland City Hall 333 W. Ellsworth Street Midland, MI 48640 (outside the Larkin Street Entrance)
  • Barstow Airport 6603 Barstow Drive, Midland, MI 48642 (across from the entrance to the administration building)
  • Midland Civic Arena 405 Fast Ice Drive, Midland, MI 48642 (outside the northeast corner of the building)

Emergency Absent Voter Ballot

If an emergency, such as a sudden illness or family death prevents you from reaching the polls on election day, you may request an emergency absent voter ballot. Requests for an emergency ballot must be submitted after the deadline for regular absent voter ballots has passed but before 4 p.m. on election day. The emergency must have occurred at a time which made it impossible for you to apply for a regular absent voter ballot.
