Vote by Mail Option Available for All Registered Voters
All registered voters in Michigan have the right to vote by mail without providing a reason. It is a safe way to vote and protect your health. Consider voting by mail for the Aug. 4 primary and Nov. 3 general election.  

Absent Voter Applications were mailed to those on the Automatic Absent Voter Application list at the end of May.  This application is good for both the August and November 2020 Elections.  In addition, in June 2020, the Secretary of State's Office mailed absent voter ballot applications to all registered voters. The application is good for the August and November 2020 elections.
