Absentee Ballots

Due to the constitutional amendment passed by voters in 2018, all eligible and registered voters in Michigan may request an absent voter ballot without providing a reason. They can visit their local clerk’s office for an absent voter ballot application or download one at Michigan.gov/Vote.

All voters can visit the Michigan Voter Information Center at Michigan.gov/Vote to view the candidates and questions that will be on their ballot.

The Department of Elections is responsible for making sure that every resident in Detroit has the opportunity to register to vote and to exercise their right at their designated polling location.
