Applications for absentee ballots for the August Primary are available from your local clerk until 4:00 P.M. on Monday, August 6, 2018.  Voters may request an absentee ballot if they meet one of the following criteria: (1) are 60 years of age or older, (2) expect to be absent from the community in which they are registered the entire time the polls are open on election day, (3) are physically unable to attend the polls without the assistance of another, (4) cannot attend the polls because of the tenets of their religion, (5) are a precinct inspector in a precinct other than the precinct in which they reside, (6) cannot attend the polls because they are confined in jail awaiting arraignment or trial.

 The Frankenmuth City Office will be open on Saturday, August 4, 2018 from 8:30 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. for the purpose of accepting absentee voter applications and distributing absentee ballots.  Please contact Frankenmuth Township Clerk Luci Valone at 652-3430, x184 or Blumfield Township Clerk Lisa Roethlisberger at 652-2778 for their availability to obtain an absentee ballot.  On Monday, August 6, 2018, applications for absentee ballots will be available until 4:00 P.M.; however, voters will be required to cast their ballot in the City Clerk’s office.

 Because this is a Primary election, in the Partisan section of the ballot, voters may only vote for Democratic, Libertarian or Republican candidates - no cross-over voting is allowed between parties for this election.  In addition, there is a proposal section for four County proposals.   

 Voters can log onto www.Michigan.gov/vote to obtain specific information to you such as a personalized copy of your ballot.  You will need to enter your personal information as prompted.              

 The City has nearly 4,000 registered voters and has processed over 400 absentee ballot requests to date.
