Absentee Ballots:
Anyone age 60 or older or physically unable to attend the polls is eligible to receive an absentee ballot.  You may also vote absentee if you expect to be gone on Election Day.  To request an application, call the Clerk’s office at 866-0622 during regular office hours or in our website under Links/Public documents & Forms/Election & Voter is an absentee voter ballot you can print with instructions or visit the website below for MVIC.

Courtland Township maintains a permanent Absentee Voter list for anyone who is at least 60 years old or anyone who is disabled who has asked to be put on the permanent AV list. Applications to obtain a ballot will be automatically mailed to those on the list prior to each election, and ballots will be mailed upon receipt of the signed applications. Voters may also obtain an Absentee Ballot for several other reasons such as being out of town on Election Day, so please contact my office for information.

Note to New Voters:
If you registered by mail, you must vote in person the first time unless you are age 60 or over.  This applies to many out-of-town college students who will be voting for the first time this November.  To be sure you will be eligible to receive an Absentee Ballot, either register at a Secretary of State branch office or the township office, or vote in person in your precinct.

One Final Note:
There is a difference between a primary and a general election.  A primary election is held by the political parties to select their nominee for the offices to be elected at the general election in November.  In a primary, Republicans run against Republicans and Democrats run against Democrats.  If other parties qualify to appear on the primary ballot, their candidates run against each other as well.  You may vote in one party section only on the primary ballot.  You cannot “split your ticket” in August.  A general election is a race between party nominees and any candidates without political party affiliation.  The general election determines which candidates will occupy the offices that are up for election. Statewide ballot proposals also appear on the general election ballot.
