Elections
   

Visit the Michigan Voter Information Center provided by the Michigan Secretary of State's Office prior to a scheduled election to be sure you are:

1. Registered to Vote
2. Registered to Vote at your current address (should be the same address on your driver's license)

Making those changes now will make a smoother Election Day for all of us.

On this same website you can:

1.  Confirm your voting location (maps are included)

2.  Check on the status of your Absent Voter Ballot.

 

 

November 3, 2020 Update

As of September 29, 2020 all Absent Voter Ballots (AVB) requested prior to September 18, 2020 have been mailed.  Those requested after September 18 will be processed and mailed by October 2, 2020.  Before calling the City of Flushing, please go to the State of Michigan Voter Information Center to check on the status of your ballot and allow 7 to 10 days to receive your ballot.  If you plan to return your ballot by mail, please attempt to do so prior to October 19, 2020 in order to allow plenty of time for the Postal Service to process the voluminous amount of AVB's they are dealing with across the State of Michigan and United States.  

Absent Voter Ballots may be securely dropped in either of the City's two drop boxes (in the circle drive or by the front entrance door to city hall) which are emptied multiple times a day, or dropped off at the counter where you pay your utility bill.   

Thank you for your patience, understanding and cooperation.

PERMANENT ABSENTEE VOTER BALLOT LIST

 

For your convenience, the City of Flushing maintains a permanent Absent Voter Ballot (AVB) List.  Should you choose to be on this list, prior to every election you will receive through the mail an Application to Vote (or a “dual” application in years where there is a primary and a general election) that you must sign and return to our office to consent for us to send you a ballot.  After you have signed and returned the Application to Vote for the applicable election(s), you will receive a ballot when they have been printed and delivered to us.  If you choose not to vote, or not to vote by AVB, in any given election simply do not send back the Application to Vote, and you will not receive a ballot.
