Michigan Secretary of State to Mail Absentee Ballot Application Forms

The Michigan Secretary of State’s Office has announced that in the next few weeks all registered voters in the State of Michigan will be receiving absentee ballot application forms by mail. For City of Dexter residents on the City’s Permanent Absentee Voter List, the City will be mailing application forms the week of May 25th. For all other registered voters, the Michigan Secretary of State will be mailing application forms in the next few weeks.

Absentee ballot application forms will contain an option to receive absentee ballots for both the August 4th Primary and the November 3rd General Elections. Application forms will also contain a checkbox to be added to the permanent absentee voter list for voters not already on the permanent list. Any voter registered in the City of Dexter that is interested in receiving an absentee ballot should return a completed application to the City Offices by mail at 8123 Main St., 2nd Floor, Dexter, MI 48130 or by photographing/scanning a picture of their completed application and e-mailing it to the City Clerk at the contact information below.

Voters who already submitted an application for the cancelled May Election will not need to submit a new application for August as the May application will “roll-over” and will be valid for the August Election.

Voters may also register for the permanent absentee voter list by contacting the City Clerk or by visiting the Washtenaw County Clerk's website at - https://www.washtenaw.org/FormCenter/Clerk-25/Permanent-Absent-Voter-List-Registration-179.

Questions about voting or absentee ballots should be submitted to the City Clerk by phone at 734-580-2234 or e-mail at Jbreyer@dextermi.gov.
