Applications for absentee ballots

August 4, 2020 and November 3, 2020 Elections

Theresa Paddock 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Answers to all your questions concerning the August primary and November general election.


  •  Why did I receive an application for an absentee ballot?

Under the direction of Secretary of State Benson, applications for absentee ballots for the August Election were mailed to all voters in the State of Michigan. This has left many voters confused over the process.

Many Michigan residents are not yet comfortable in social settings. Offering applications to every voter; offers them the opportunity to request an absentee ballot for the election and not feel their right to vote has been compromised.


  •     I do not want to vote absentee! What do I do? Does this mean I have to?

No!  Voters who wish to vote in person may still do so. It is unknown at this time if all precincts will be open but; we will have at least one precinct available for those who wish to vote in person on election day. We are currently working with normal precinct hosts on availability of their facilities and started to recruit workers. In the interim, we have acquired sneeze shields and personal protective equipment for our workers. If you can vote by mail, we highly recommend you do so, as we cannot guarantee how many precincts and workers will be available on election day.

  •  Why did I receive an application for my son / daughter who no longer resides here?

Even though they may not have lived here for years; a formal cancellation of their voter registration was never received. The State database still shows them as registered voters in Michigan. Please have your child advise the Clerk’s office in writing their wish to cancel their voter registration at the address we have on file. Written requests may be received via email to; fax 269-629-5993 or delivered to 7401 N 32nd St., Richland, MI 49083,


  •  You mailed an application to my address for an owner who hasn’t lived here in several years. You mailed an application to my deceased family member.
