Absentee Ballots Still Available for November Election

The deadline is 2 p.m. Saturday to request a ballot sent by mail and 4 p.m. next Monday to pick one up in person.

With the Nov. 6 election only one week away, there is still time to request an absentee ballot.

For Wyandotte residents, a request to have an absentee ballot mailed out must be received by the office of City Clerk William Griggs by 2 p.m. Saturday. 

Griggs said anyone wishing to pick one up in person must come to his office by 4 p.m. next Monday. The office is located on the first floor of Wyandotte City Hall.

Once the ballot is completed, voters have until 8 p.m. on Election Day to return it to the clerk’s office.

According to the Michigan Department of State, a registered voter requesting an absentee ballot must meet one of the following requirements:

  • 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
  • Appointed to work as an election inspector in a precinct outside of your precinct of residence.
