Drive-up Ballot Drop Box
City Hall offers a drive-up absentee ballot drop box, located near the driveway entrance off of Henrietta. Registered voters may simply pull up, deposit an absentee ballot or absent voter ballot application and be on their way. Don’t forget to sign and seal the ballot envelope.
Traditional Absentee Ballot
A friend or family member can assist the voter with the paperwork involved with a traditional absentee ballot application and ballot.
Accessible Absentee Ballot
The Michigan Bureau of Elections has launched an accessible absent voter ballot application that can be used to apply for an accessible electronic absent voter ballot for the August Election. Blind voters and others with severe disabilities that prevent them from voting absent voter ballots privately and independently can mark the documents on an electronic device, using their own assistive technology, without visiting a polling place or clerk’s office. The voter may download an accessible absentee ballot application to request an accessible absentee ballot. The accessible absentee ballot application and ballot are digital pdfs that can be electronically signed, printed, and returned to the Clerk. These documents work with software that will read to the voter who needs the accommodations.
Voter Assist Terminal
The voter may make an appointment at City Hall to use the Voter Assist Terminal – a computer that can mark and print a ballot for a voter who needs assistance. This is the same device that is provided to accommodate voters in every live precinct on Election Day.
The voter may make an appointment for curbside voting. Two members of the Clerk’s Office will assist the voter, witness the transaction, and complete the necessary documents as directed by the voter.
Contact the Clerk’s office at email@example.com or 248-530-1880 for further directions and assistance.
