Your Vote Counts
We all know that there is an election happening soon. Luckily, we can vote absentee, if you so choose. If you haven’t yet registered to vote, or still need to request your absentee ballot, you still have time… but don’t delay! You can actually go to your city clerk’s office with your state identification and request your absentee ballot. At the same time, you can actually receive your absentee ballot, but you can not pick up someone else’s ballot. If you return your ballot by election day, either in a drop box, at the clerk’s office or through the mail, your vote will be counted!
Voting is an easy way for your voice to be heard. Now we have the opportunity to even request all future ballots to be sent via absentee voting. During this time of a possible “surge” or “second wave” of the coronavirus, more than half of Oakland County voters have chosen the absentee option. This way, you have time and social distancing in your control. Many offices are e3ven open on Saturdays for voting.
If you have any questions about how to request a ballot, call your city clerk’s office. They will be able to answer all your questions and assist you with making sure your vote counts. There are options to have someone designated to assist you, if you need the assistance. Again, contact your city clerk’s office for all the specifics to your city and to be sure you are properly registered to vote.
We are lucky to have these options. November 3, 2020 is election day. All ballots must be postmarked by November 3, 2020 or dropped off to your clerk’s office by the end of voting in your specific area.
