How do I get an absentee ballot?
Eligible voters may request an absentee ballot for any reason at all!
In the 2018 election, voters approved a proposition to expand access to voting, including being able to vote absentee without having to give a reason. (It is still wise to apply 1-2 months prior to the election.)
Absentee Ballot Application – There’s no downside. You can get everything you need to vote absentee at Michigan.gov/vote or at your local clerk’s office. Learn how to make sure your absentee vote is counted.
