How can I obtain an absentee ballot application?

You may obtain an absentee ballot application from the City Clerk's Office or access an application online at the Michigan Voter Information website.

Residents who wish to obtain an absentee ballot in person must show a photo I.D.

Photo ID Requirement As a result of legislation enacted in 2012 (PA 523 of 2012), voters who obtain an absent voter ballot in person is also required to comply with the picture identification requirement. If a voter is not in possession of a picture ID, they may sign the same Affidavit of Voter not in Possession of Picture Identification form that is used in the polls on Election Day. AV ballots from voters that obtain a ballot in person and do not provide picture identification and sign the affidavit form must be processed as a challenged ballot on Election Day.
