NOTICE TO VOTERS ON CITY PERMANENT BALLOT APPLICATION MAILING LIST REGARDING MAILING OF ABSENTEE BALLOT APPLICATIONS
If you have already requested your name to be placed on the permanent absentee ballot application mailing list, your vote-by-mail application for a ballot for the next election will be mailed to you approximately 45 days prior to the election date by the City Clerk's Office of the City of Harper Woods.
All eligible registered voters in Michigan may now request an absent voter ballot without providing a reason. Absentee voting is a convenient way to cast a ballot instead of going to the voting precinct on Election Day. Absentee ballot applications are available online or at City Hall. All Ballots can be returned by placing them in the drop box in the front lobby of City Hall up to and including Election Day. Don't delay, return your ballot as soon as possible.
Voters can also request to be on the Permanent Absentee Voter List for future elections. Voters who join the mailing list must do so in writing and will receive an application by mail prior to every election.
Forms and Applications can be returned by the following methods: by mail, dropped off at City Hall, by using the after-hours drop box, faxing to 313-343-2507, or email - email@example.com.
Any registered voter who cannot go to the polls on election day may obtain an Absentee Ballot. You may apply in person or by mail - as early as 75 days in advance and up to 4:00 pm the Monday proceeding the election.
Note: A written request for an Absentee Ballot must include your signature, date and date of birth.
Yes. If you would like an application for an Absentee Ballot mailed to you approximately 6 weeks prior to the election, please submit a request in writing (email is acceptable), using the AV Perm List Request form (link above), or call (313) 343-2510. A voter who submits a request will have their name placed on the permanent list; which allows an application to be mailed to you prior to each election
