Specific information on absentee voting from the Michigan Department of State:
For more information on absentee voting, or to register to vote, go to Michigan.gov/Vote.
All registered voters can apply for an absent voter ballot and may do so by filling out an online form at Michigan.gov/Vote and providing information including their driver’s license or state ID card number and the last four digits of their Social Security number.
Alternatively, voters may print out an application form from the site and send it, or a written, signed request for a ballot, to their clerk. They can mail their request, email a scan or photo of it or deliver it in person. Voters can find their clerk’s contact information at Michigan.gov/Vote.
Voters with print disabilities may apply online for an accessible electronic absent voter ballot at Michigan.gov/Vote or Michigan.gov/AccessibleBallot. The accessible ballot can be completed electronically, printed and returned to their clerk.
