What happens if I voted for someone who dropped out of Michigan’s presidential primary?

By Malachi Barrett | mbarret1@mlive.com
Michigan residents have time to recast their absentee ballot if they already voted for a candidate who dropped out of the presidential primary since early voting began in late-January.

Michigan law gives voters who turned in an absentee ballot the option to “spoil” their ballot and obtain a new one, providing a second chance to pick a candidate who is still in the race. This can be done by submitting a request to a local clerk before election day on March 10.

Voters can submit a written request to their local clerk by mail by 2 p.m. on March 7, the Saturday before the primary. The request must specify whether the voter would like to receive a new absentee ballot or whether they will instead come in and vote at the polls on election day. The request must also be signed.

A voter can also request to spoil their voted absentee ballot in person at their clerk’s office until 4 p.m. on March 9. There is no option on Election Day to spoil an absentee ballot that has been received by the clerk.

This also applies to voters who filled out their absentee ballot but haven’t turned it in yet. Voters should destroy their spoiled ballot when asking for a new one.

Nearly 2,500 voters have “spoiled” their absentee ballot as of Feb. 21, according to the Michigan Secretary of State. That’s only 1% of the absentee ballots turned in so far.

Early voting is easier than ever thanks to new laws adopted by voters in 2018. All registered voters in Michigan can vote using an absentee ballot for any reason, but they need to request one from their local clerks first.

Rally tonight at 6 in the old Denton Twp Hall

We are just hours away from our monthly “quick” monthly meeting followed by our Pre-primary Rally. Sure hoping you can make it! Also there will be pizza and the coffee pot will be on. 6 p.m. at the old Denton Twp Hall in Prudenville.

Come out for Rally Night!

Tomorrow night (Wednesday, February 26th ) the Roscommon County Democratic Party will be holding a RALLY NIGHT a week before the Michigan Democratic Primary Election. After the short business meeting we will convene a “caucus” style event where we will ask attendees to speak on behalf of the candidates still left in the race. We will listen to the speakers do some “arm twisting” to convince others to support each candidate. Now some of you may have already voted ABSENTEE but still come out to show support for our candidates. Past-President of the RCDP, Frank Peshick will lead us through this fun and informative event.

The goal of this meeting is to be informative and entertaining but will not result in an endorsement of a candidate from the local party. So please plan on attending and bring family, or friend. You need not be a member of the Democratic Party to attend our meetings.

We will start at 6 p.m. with our business meeting and then begin the Rally, we meet at the old Denton Township Hall in Prudenville.  Refreshments and snacks will be provided.
