How can I get an Absentee Ballot?

Due to the passage of the statewide ballot proposal 18-3, all eligible and registered voters in Michigan may now request an absent voter ballot without providing a reason. To receive an absentee ballot for an upcoming election, you must complete and return an absentee ballot application. Your request for an absent voter ballot must be in writing and can be submitted to the City Clerk. You must request an absent voter ballot by submitting the application, a letter, a postcard, or a pre-printed application form obtained from the Clerk’s office. Requests may be returned by hand, via postal mail, fax, or email, as long as a signature is visible.

You can now apply online through the Michigan Voter Information Center to receive an absentee ballot.
