What should voters do if they have not received their absentee ballot by mail before Election Day?

Voters who have submitted their absentee ballot application are encouraged to track their request online at Michigan.gov/Vote to ensure their local clerk’s office received their request. The website will also track when a local clerk’s office sends an absentee ballot to the voter by mail and when the clerk has received the ballot back from the voter.

Voters who have not received their absentee ballot as Election Day approaches are encouraged to visit Michigan.gov/Vote to confirm their voter registration information and address is up to date. If they confirm this is the case, they may contact their local clerk’s office to check on the status of their absentee ballot application and requested ballot.

Voters may also request an absentee ballot at their city or township clerk’s office up until 4 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 2.
