More Election Resources

First, you may be interested in an absentee ballot if you don't already have one. According to the Secretary of State's website, As a registered voter, you may obtain an absentee voter ballot if you meet any of the following conditions:

  • age 60 years old or older
  • unable to vote without assistance at the polls
  • expecting to be out of town on election day
  • in jail awaiting arraignment or trial
  • unable to attend the polls due to religious reasons
  • appointed to work as an election inspector in a precinct outside of your precinct of residence.

Requests to have an absentee voter ballot mailed to you must be received by your clerk no later than 2 p.m. the Saturday before the election. You can get more info and print out an absentee ballot application at this Secretary of State web page. I took it to my clerk's office in Lansing Township and they gave me the ballot in about five minutes. (I'm sure that will depend on how busy they are.)

And here's an excellent resource from the Secretary of State, too. You put in a little info, it tells you if you are registered and where to vote. Best of all, there will be a link to a sample ballot for your polling place. Very handy for figuring everything out before you go to your polling place, if you're not voting absentee.
