A message to our voters:

Absentee Ballot Applications

Many residents are receiving multiple Absentee Ballot Applications, we know that this is very frustrating and assure you that Township Clerk’s Office is not responsible for sending them.  We do not send out unsolicited Absentee Ballot Applications.  They are being sent by third-party entities, and very often contain wrong information or are for voters no longer at the address.  If you receive one in the mail, the best action to take is to destroy it.  If you requested one from the Clerk, please complete it and return it to the Township Hall as soon as possible.

Absentee Voting

Another confusing issue is Early Voting, Michigan is an Absentee Voting State. This means that registered voters can obtain a ballot before the election, mark their selections and return their ballot to their local clerk.  This does not mean that ballots are processed through the tabulator early or that residents can vote early at the Township Hall.  Ballots received are securely held (unopened) and processed by certified Elections Inspectors on Election Day.  You may request an Absentee Ballot by contacting us or at

Precinct #2 Location Change

Do you have a heart on your driver's license?

If not, go to to join the Michigan Organ Donor Registry.

Follow them on Facebook at

Register your decision to become an organ, tissue and eye donor, and receive a red heart donor symbol for the front of your Michigan driver’s license or state ID card. Signing the back of your license does not enroll you in the Donor Registry.
