Clerk Will Mail 8,500 Absentee Ballots for November Election

Didn't apply to vote absentee? Deadline for the Nov. 6 election is Nov. 3.

Absentee voter ballots for the Nov. 6 general election will be mailed Oct. 5, Macomb Township Clerk Michael D. Koehs said during the Sept. 26 Board of Trustees meeting. 

The clerk’s office received 8,500 ballots Sept. 21. 

“The November election is well under way,” Koehs said.

More than 9,000 absentee votes were cast in the 2008 presidential election, according to results from the Macomb County Clerk's Office.

Macomb Township residents wishing to vote absentee have until 2 p.m. Nov. 3 to request an absentee ballot by mail. A voter eligible to vote absentee may also vote in person at the township clerk's office anytime up to 4 p.m. the day of the election.

Completed absent voter ballot applications can be mailed to the township clerk or delivered personally to: Michael D. Koehs, CMC, Clerk; 54111 Broughton Road, Macomb, MI 48042

The clerk's office must receive absentee ballots by mail or in-person delivery by the close of the polls Nov. 6 (8 p.m.) for these votes to be counted.

  • age 60 years old or older
  • unable to vote without assistance at the polls
  • expecting to be out of town on election day
  • in jail awaiting arraignment or trial
  • unable to attend the polls due to religious reasons
