Absentee voting is available to registered voters who qualify for an absentee ballot under Michigan law. The City of Ithaca also maintains a permanent absentee voting list for voters who qualify and would like the application automatically mailed to them for each election.
Voters in need of an absentee ballot request one by doing the following:
Your request for an absentee voter ballot must be in writing and submitted to your city clerk. Absentee applications may be obtained from the local clerk, County Clerk, Secretary of State office or online at www.mi.gov/vote. Requests to have an absentee voter ballot mailed to you must be received by the City Clerk no later than 2 p.m. the Saturday before the election.
You must be a registered voter
to receive an absentee ballot. Requests for absentee voter ballots are processed immediately. Absentee voter ballots may be issued to you at your home address or any address outside of your city residence.
Absentee ballots may also be obtained by making application in person at the Ithaca City Hall. Photo identification or a signed affidavit of identity is required to obtain a ballot.
The Ithaca City Hall is open on the Saturday and Sunday prior to any election from the hours of 8:30am to 12:30pm for absentee ballot requests and registering to vote. Voters needing to obtain an absentee ballot on the Monday before the election, must do so in person at Ithaca City Hall between the hours of 8:00am and 4:00pm.
