[ARCHIVED] How to vote using an absentee ballot in the City of Jackson

Hand filling out an absentee ballot

The City of Jackson has seen a large increase in residents voting by absentee ballot during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Voters who applied for an absentee ballot in the August Primary Election and indicated they’d like to receive an absentee ballot for the Nov. General Election on their application will receive their Nov. ballots in the mail. Those wanting to request an absentee ballot, who have not already applied, may apply on the Secretary of State’s website at Michigan.gov/vote, by mail, by email, or in person.

Absentee ballots will be available 40 days before the election. If you’d like to check on the status of your absentee ballot, such as if one is coming to your home or has been received by the City Clerk’s Office, visit the Secretary of State website. It’s important for absentee voters living in the same household to pay close attention to ensure the ballot assigned to them is returned in the appropriate envelope.  Contact the City Clerk’s Office if a mistake is made on an absentee ballot to get instructions on how to correct it. 

Electors may return ballots directly to the City Clerk’s Office during business hours or in the 24 hour drop box outside of City Hall.  Those opting to return ballots by mail are encouraged to do so as early as possible. Absentee ballots must be submitted by 8 p.m. on Election Day to be counted in the election.

It’s important to know that you can register to vote on Election Day and vote by absentee ballot in person at the City Clerk’s Office or vote at your precinct after registering to vote. The City Clerk’s Office says planning ahead and getting your absentee ballot submitted early will help make sure our election goes smoothly.

All other voting information can be found in the Election Division page.
