[ARCHIVED] New absentee ballot drop box installed outside Jackson City Hall

Absentee ballot drop box outside City Hall

A new absentee ballot drop box has been installed outside the front entrance of Jackson City Hall ahead of the Tuesday, Nov. 8 General Election.

The City Clerk's Office used funding from the Michigan Secretary of State to obtain and install the new drop box. Registered voters in the City of Jackson may now use it to submit completed absentee ballots. The box will be open for ballot submission for every election cycle from the time absentee ballots are mailed until 8 p.m. on Election Day. 

The new drop box provides added safety and security for absentee ballots. Like other communities across Michigan, the City of Jackson has seen a sizable increase in absentee ballot submissions in recent years due to the COVID-19 pandemic and a 2018 initiative that expanded absentee ballot access to Michiganders. 

The new drop box, which is located at 161 W. Michigan Ave., is for completed absentee ballots only. All other City paperwork submissions, including absentee ballot applications, should be submitted to the standard drop box outside City Hall. 

Learn more about voting in the upcoming election from the Election Division of the City website.
