Vote at Home

Registered voters with a Michigan ID can request an absentee ballot online at

Registered voters can also print, complete, and sign an absentee ballot application and return it to the clerk’s office by mail, email, fax, drop box, or in person. Applications are available 75 days before an election.

Learn more about voting at home by visiting the Michigan Voter Information Center.

If a voter has already voted absentee and wishes to change their vote (because the candidate has dropped out of the race, or for any other reason), a voter can spoil their ballot by submitting a written request to our office.

Vote Early

Starting 40 days before each election, we have two locations available for in-person, absentee voting opportunities.
