VOTING VIA MAIL IN ABSENTEE BALLOT:

To vote via mail in absentee ballot, either:

1) You registered to vote “in person”

(“in person” means personally registering at the Secretary of State or at the city/township/county clerk)
OR
2) You have voted in a Michigan election before
(You are a “veteran voter”)

IF NEITHER OF THESE OPTIONS IS TRUE, THEN YOU CANNOT VOTE VIA ABSENTEE BALLOT.

Assuming that 1 or 2 above is true, then:

You must APPLY to vote via mail in absentee ballot.

This requires (UGH !) FILLING OUT A FORM AND
MAILING IT TO YOUR CLERK (DOUBLE UGH!) BY OCTOBER 26, 2012 (TRIPLE UGH!).

THE CLERK MUST RECEIVE THE MAIL IN APP by 2pm on November 3, 2012. the Saturday before election day,
so mailing it by October 26 should give you enough time (one week) to get it there.



THE FORM LOOKS LIKE THE ONE PICTURED BELOW.

COMPLETE IT, PRINT IT AND MAIL IT TO YOUR CLERK.

AFTER MAILING THE COMPLETED FORM, THE BALLOT WILL THEN BE MAILED TO YOU. (YAY!)
