With the passage of Proposal 3 in the November 2018 General Election, registered voters can now request an Absentee Ballot without providing a reason.  Under Michigan election law, you are also eligible to be placed on the Permanent Absent Voter List.

If you would like to receive an Absent Voter Ballot, send a request with your name and address to  You will be sent an Absent Voter Application.  You may also fill out an Absent Voter Application through this online link: and send it to the Clerk by mail (P.O. Box 503, Manistique, MI  49854) or email.  Remember, you must complete an application before we are able to mail your ballot. 

To be included on the Permanent Absent Voter's List, simply mark the box on the Absent Ballot Application. This will enable the Clerk to mail you an application for an Absent Voter's Ballot before each election. 

Another change brought about by the passage of Proposal 3 is Automatic Voter Registration.  The Secretary of State will automatically register all qualified voters who submit applications or changes of address applications for driver's licenses or state personal ID cards (or enhanced versions of those forms of ID), as long as the person does not opt out of registration.
