Absentee Ballot Information

Absentee Ballot Information
Attention Voters:
Anyone can Vote by Mail! No standing in line! You don’t have reach a certain age! No reason is needed, due to the passage of the ballot initiative in the 2018 election. All that is required is that you are registered to vote. You can register to vote up to and including election day. The important dates regarding registration and submitting ballots are show at the bottom of this page after the township clerks office locations. If you are not registered to
vote, you can do it at your township clerk’s office or on line.
Application for Absentee Ballot
To get your application for an Absentee Ballot (often called a mail-in ballot) you can either pick one up from your township clerk or on line at Absent Voter Application.

Print the application and take it or send it to your township clerk’s office. A ballot will be either given to you or mailed to you. You can either complete at the clerk’s office or take it home and mail it back in. Or, you can return it to your township
clerk’s office in person. Be sure to check their office hours. Most township offices in Roscommon County have drop off boxes.
Note: There is a place on the Absent Voter Application to indicate that you want to automatically receive absentee ballot applications for every election!
