Absent voter ballots are available for all elections.
Uniformed service members, their families, and citizens residing outside the United States may use the Federal Post Card Application to register to vote and/or apply for an absentee ballot. The application is available through the Federal Voting Assistance Program.
Voters should send the completed application to your city or township clerk for all elections. If you want the ballot mailed, your application must be received by 5:00 p.m. the Friday before the election. Make your request early to allow for delivery time.
A voter may also vote an absent voter ballot in person at your local clerk's office anytime up to 4:00 p.m. the day before the election. All absent voter ballots must be received by your local clerk's office not later than 8:00 p.m. on election day.
A separate absent voter ballot request must be submitted for each election. If you know before the primary that you will be unable to vote in person at the general election, you may request absent voter ballots for both elections at the same time.
You may be eligible for an emergency absent voter ballot if a family death or illness requires you to leave your community on election day, or you are unable to attend the polls because of personal illness or accident. The emergency must have occurred late enough that you could not file a regular absent voter ballot request. Have someone deliver your written request for an emergency absent voter ballot to the Clerk's Office before 4:00 p.m. on election day. Emergency ballots must be returned by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.
