Notice to Residents age 60 & older
Any resident that are or may be turning 60 on or before November 8, 2016 may qualify to be on our Permanent Absentee Voter List. 2016 is going to be an extremely busy election year, and so for your convenience, I urge you to consider being placed on this list.
The State Legislature recently voted to eliminate straight party voting effective with the November 8, 2016 Election. This means when voting your November ballot, you will need to work through the entire ballot and select candidate(s) in each position you would like to vote for. This could potentially create long lines at the precincts.
THE CONVENIENCE OF VOTING ABSENTEE BALLOT
Pursuant to Election Law, if you meet one of these requirements, you may vote 'absentee':
* Age 60 years old or older
* Unable to vote without assistance at
* Expecting to be out of town on
* In jail awaiting arraignment or trial
* Unable to attend the polls due to
* Appointed to work as an election
inspector in a precinct outside of your
precinct of residence
As noted above, you may qualify to be on the Permanent Absent Voter List. When on this list, you will automatically receive an absent voter application for every election (you will not automatically receive a ballot, this list is to automatically receive the application only). If you choose to return that application, we will send you a ballot as soon as they arrive in our office. No phone calls, no time crunch, no lines, no hassle. If this would appeal to you please contact the Clerk's Office at (989) 624-9773.
Blues, Brews & BBQ will be held July 29th & 30th at Premium Outlets
