Can I vote absentee rather than at the polls?

Absolutely! The proposal passed in the election in November of 2018 has removed all qualifications for absentee voting. The State of Michigan election law provides for no reason absentee voting, therefore any qualified elector may request and receive an absentee ballot.

Please note that requesting a new AV ballot regardless of the reason must be done in writing. Even in a case when the ballot is not delivered by the post office, a request for a replacement ballot cannot be done verbally, it must be done in writing.
