All residents requesting to vote by mail must be registered to vote and fill out an Absent Voter Ballot Application with a valid signature for verification of voter identity. Applications can be submitted online at the Michigan Voter Information Center or printed and sent electronically to the Clerk’s Office, or mailed or dropped off at the Clerk’s Office.
