If you are mailing in your absentee ballot, it is recommended that it be mailed no later than October 20 to assure its arrival before November 3. Also remember that it requires more than one stamp, either a 71¢ stamp or two 55¢ stamps.
Tracking Your Ballot
If you are choosing to vote via an absentee ballot and mail it in, be sure to track your ballot – when your application was received, when your ballot was sent to you, and when your ballot was received at your clerk’s office. This tracking appears on your voter registration page (www.michigan.gov/vote). If you don’t see this information in a timely manner, be sure to call your clerk’s office to check. You can find your clerk’s office and phone number, also at www.michigan.gov/vote.
