Voter Registration information and request an absent voter ballot

In November 2018 voters passed Proposal 18-3.  The proposal brings about new voting opportunities.  Changes include:

  • The deadline to register to vote in any manner other than with the township clerk’s office (example: Secretary of State office) is 15 days before the election.
  • Voters may register up through the election day in-person in the township clerk’s office with proof of residency.  The township clerk’s office will be open the weekend before elections to register voters and issue absent voter ballots.
  • All registered voters may vote from home.  To request an absent voter ballot to vote from home you may use this application, or you may send a signed request in writing to the clerk’s office.

If you would like further information you can visit Michigan Voter Information Center or contact Diane Giska or Monica Ashton at 989-348-4361.


October 1, 2020 is the deadline for REAL ID.  Be prepared when you go to the Secretary of State office. To learn more, visit
