Will all those who have signed up to be on the permanent absentee voting list automatically receive an absentee ballot for the Nov. 3 election?

No. Voters who are on the permanent absentee voting list still need to complete and submit an absent voter ballot application and may request an absentee ballot in person at their city or township clerk’s office by Monday, Nov. 2, 2020, at 4 p.m. Information for all local Michigan clerks is available on Michigan.gov/Vote.

The permanent absentee voting list only ensures that a voter automatically receives an absentee ballot application from their local clerk’s office ahead of every election. An absentee ballot is not automatically sent to voters on this list.
