How can registered Michigan voters overseas confirm they will receive an absentee ballot ahead of the Nov. 3 election?

Any registered Michigan voter serving or living abroad who has registered and requested to vote by absentee ballot anytime after Nov. 5, 2019, will automatically be sent an absent voter ballot ahead of the Nov. 3, 2020, general election. Those who have not yet requested to receive an absentee ballot may do so by downloading and completing a Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) from the Federal Voting Assistance Program website, fvap.gov, to return to their local clerk’s office in Michigan via email, mail, or by fax.

Overseas voters can verify their Michigan voter registration information and confirm whether they are registered to receive an absentee ballot ahead of the Nov. 3 election may do so by visiting Michigan.gov/Vote. Here, voters can track the status of their absentee ballot application and mailing of their absentee ballot, as well as view contact information for their local clerk’s office in the event follow up is required.

Please note, absentee ballot applications must be received no later than 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 31, 2020, in order to receive an absentee ballot to vote in the Nov. 3 general election.
