Absent Voter Ballot Information
DID YOU KNOW you can skip the line on Election Day and vote by mail? Voting has never been easier!
With the passage of Proposal 18-3 in November 2018, new changes are available for Michigan voters. One of the biggest changes is that ALL eligible registered voters in Michigan may now request an absent voter ballot without providing a reason. You can also request to be placed on the permanent absentee voter list to save a step in the future.
To request an application prior to any Election, request to be placed on the permanent list, or if you have any questions about the process, please contact the Charter Township of Alpena Clerk's office at 989-356-0297 Ext. 6. Or visit the Secretary of State Website.
You may also access the link to the left of the page to download an Absentee Application. Just complete the application and return to the Clerk's office so we can process. Upon completion of the application we will then mail you a ballot.
