Absentee Ballots

All voters can visit the Michigan Voter Information Center at Michigan.gov/Vote to view the candidates and questions that will be on their ballot.

Applications for absentee ballots are accepted by mail beginning 75 days prior to each election. Registered voters can apply for an absentee ballot by mail until the Friday just prior to the election OR in person at the Township Clerk's Office during regular business hours Monday - Friday from 8:30am - 4:30pm (closed 12:00pm - 1:00pm for lunch daily) beginning 4 weeks before each election or during special hours on the last Saturday before each election from 8:00am - 4:00pm. The final deadline to apply for an absentee ballot in person is 4:00pm, the day before each election (Monday). A signed application must be received by the Township Clerk before an absentee ballot will be issued.

Absentee ballots are mailed approximately 5 weeks before each election. You can mail back your application for a ballot and your voted ballot. All returned absentee ballot envelopes are processed and tabulated on Election Day. Absentee ballots are counted by an absent voter counting board and the votes are applied to each voter's assigned precinct along with all of the in-person votes cast on Election Day.

Contact Clerk's Office: (734) 484 - 4700, Clerk Karen Lovejoy Roe at . You may also apply in-person at the Township Civic Center (7200 S. Huron River Dr. 48197). Voters requesting and picking up absentee ballots in person at the Township Clerk's Office will be subject to the Michigan voter identification requirement. Ballots issued in person are only given to the voter. Spouses and family members may return applications, but may not pick up the unvoted ballots for each other. A drop box is available in front of the Civic Center at 7200 S. Huron River Dr. Ypsilanti, MI 48197 for application and ballot returns.
