Nearly One Million Absentee Votes Cast

Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson says voters have turned in almost 1 million absentee ballots, and more than 2.8 million have requested them. She says we are on pace to have over 3 million vote absentee in November. Voters are also reminded they can check the status of their application or ballot online at or by calling their local city of township election clerk. This can be an especially helpful resource for voters who are receiving mailers with absent voter ballot applications or reminders to submit their ballots from political parties, third-party groups and candidates for office. While such mailings are legal and common ahead of elections, they may be based on inaccurate or out of- date information. This is no cause for alarm, but voters are encouraged to check their status online from the Michigan Department of State, or their local clerk, if they are not sure whether they have applied for or returned their ballot.
