June 24, 2022 – The Midland City Clerk’s Office will begin mailing absentee ballots for the August 2, 2022 State Primary Election this week to absentee voters who have returned their applications to vote by absentee ballot. 

Absentee ballot applications will be processed in the order they were received. To track if an application has been received, a ballot has been mailed, or if a ballot has been delivered back to the Clerk’s Office, visit the Michigan Voter Information Website (MVIC) found at

Absentee ballots will arrive by mail in a white envelope with a blue stripe on the left side labeled “Official Absent Voter Ballot”. The envelope will contain the ballot and another white envelope with a purple stripe on the left side which should be signed and used to return the completed ballot back to the City Clerk’s Office. 

Voters may obtain an application to vote by absentee ballot online at or by request at the Midland City Clerk’s Office, 333 W. Ellsworth Street, Midland, MI 48640; (989) 837-3310. 

Completed absentee ballots must be received by the City Clerk’s Office by 8 p.m. on Election Day in order to be counted. The City Clerk’s Office recommends allowing 2 weeks’ mailing time for returning voted ballots by mail. Return postage is required to mail back an absentee ballot.

A ballot drop box is available outside the Larkin Street entrance of City Hall for city of Midland residents to submit voting materials. Voters should not use the payment drop box inside the doors of City Hall to return election materials as they will not fit and may become damaged and unable to be processed.

Following the passage of Proposal 3, all registered Michigan voters are now eligible to vote by absentee ballot. For questions or more information on how to obtain an absentee ballot, visit or contact the Midland City Clerk’s Office at 989-837-3310 or
