Can I get a ballot for my husband/wife/child?

Absentee ballots can be picked up only by the registered voter that the ballot is assigned to. If we are mailing the ballot, it will be sent to the address where the voter is registered or to an alternate address requested by the voter on their application.

Can I vote early?

Michigan voters can cast absentee ballots beginning 45 days prior to Election Day. These ballots are tabulated on Election Day. For additional information, visit the mi.gov/sos.

Absentee ballots must be received by the Clerk's office no later than 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.

Can I take a picture of my ballot?

Yes, the State of Michigan settled the, 'ballot selfie' case (Crookston v. Johnson) and the Secretary of State has revised instructions regarding ballot photography. Voters are allowed to take a photograph of their own ballot, but only while in the privacy of the voting booth. The agreement doesn't affect other prohibitions on photography in the area where voting is occurring or sharing ballot images within 100 feet from the polling place.

Presidential Primary only:  Why do I have to have to tell you which type ballot I want?  We never have done this before.

Michigan Election Law (MCL 168.615c) guides the conduct of the Presidential Primary. The law requires that voters indicate in writing which political party ballot he or she wishes to vote. This requirement only applies to Presidential Primary elections, and voters will not be required to select a political party ballot type at other types of elections.
