Due to the passage of the statewide ballot proposal 18-3, all eligible and registered voters in Michigan may now request an absent voter ballot without providing a reason. Check your voter registration at Michigan Voter Information Center Michigan.gov/Vote .

Maple Grove has a permanent Absentee Voter (AV) list but due to the statewide ballot proposal 18-3, this will go away in 2024 and be replaced by the permanent Absentee Ballot List. You can request an absent voter ballot in writing and submit it to your city or township clerk. (For assistance in obtaining the address of your city or township clerk, see  Michigan.gov/Vote) If you are on the Absent Voter (AV) Application list, we will send you an application for the February Election. You can simply select the box to be added to the Absentee Ballot List. Once your request is received by your local clerk, you will be mailed an absentee ballot. (Note: You cannot call the office to get on the permanent ballot list, you must submit your request in writing) Once you receive your ballot, just fill it out and pick one of these options to return your ballot:

  • Mail it back to us in your prepaid envelope.
  • Go to the Early Voting site to process your ballot during the 9 days (hours vary) of early voting at
    • Saginaw County Governmental Center Complex
      618 Cass St.
      Saginaw, MI 48602
  • Bring it in person on Election Day to your normal precinct.

Early Voting FAQ’s:

  1. Why did I receive so many postcards to my home?
    1. Michigan Election Law requires the county to send a notice to each registered elector, not merely the household. MCL 168.662.
  2. I received a postcard for an individual who does not reside at this address.
    1. Ask the voter who received the postcard to place a mark across the name and write RTS (return to sender) on the postcard and place back in their mailbox so that the postcard can be returned to the local clerk.
  3. I do not want to use the Early Vote Center.
    1. The Early Vote Center is one of three options voters have. Voters may still visit their polling place on Election Day, or request an absentee ballot from their local clerk.
