March 10, 2020 Presidential Primary Election

New AV Ballot Envelopes
The March 10, 2020 Presidential Primary Election will be held for the purpose of electing nominees for the Democratic and Republican Parties for the Office of the President of the United States, and to vote on the following proposal: 

WASHTENAW COMMUNITY COLLEGE PROPOSAL to authorize Washtenaw Community College to levy 1.00 mill for operating purposes for 10 years. Of the 1.00 mill, 0.9718 represents a renewal of the 1.00 mill authorization approved by the electors in 2008, which will expire with the 2020 tax levy and 0.0282 mill represents a restoration of the portion of the same authority which was reduced by application of the Headlee Amendment.

The official list of candidates and full text of this proposal can be found at or sample ballots may be viewed at

The 2020 Presidential Primary is designated a closed primary, just as it was in 2012 and 2016. Michigan Election Law requires voters wishing to participate in the March 10, 2020 Election to choose a Democratic ballot, a Republican ballot, or ballot without Presidential Primary (local issues only such as proposals) when voting absentee or at the polls on Election Day. While a voter must select a specific ballot, there is no political party registration in Michigan's voter registration system. 

Voter Registration 
The last day to register to vote in any manner other than in-person with the local clerk for the March 10, 2020 Election is Monday, February 24, 2020. After this date, anyone who qualifies as an elector may register to vote in person with proof of residency (MCL 168.492) at the Pittsfield Charter Township Clerk's Office, 6201 W. Michigan Avenue, Ann Arbor, MI 48108 at the following times:

  • Regular business hours: Monday - Friday from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
  • Saturday, March 7, 2020 from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
  • Election Day, March 10, 2020 from 7:00 AM - 8:00 PM

Absentee Voting 
To vote by Absent Voter Ballot, you must first submit a request through an Absent Voter Ballot Application, or through a written request. Absent Voter Ballot Applications may be submitted at the Clerk's Office through Monday, March 9, 2020 at 4:00 PM, though the last day to mail out ballots will be Friday, March 6, 2020. For your convenience, the Clerk's Office will be open on Saturday, March 7, 2020 from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM to issue absent voter ballots. 

New Absent Voter Ballot Envelopes 
Beginning with the March 10, 2020 Primary Election, voters will notice that the absent voter ballot envelopes have been redesigned. Please contact the Clerk's Office at 734.822.3120 if you have any questions.
