I’ve changed my mind and I’ve already submitted my absentee ballot. What can I do about it??
We suggest that first, you check BallotPower.org to be sure your absentee ballot was counted. You can “spoil” your absentee ballot by submitting a written request to their City or Township clerk. The voter must sign the request and state if they would like a new absentee ballot or if they will vote at the polls. For this Tuesday’s election, the only option is to go to the clerk’s office before 4 PM on Monday to obtain a new absentee ballot or vote at the polls. (Typically this request must be received by 2 p.m. the Saturday before the election if received by the clerk by mail.) IMPORTANT: There is no option on Election Day to spoil an absentee ballot that has been received by the Clerk. [Absentee ballot voting is explained in full here.]
DON’T FORGET! Your ballot will not be counted unless your signature is on the return envelope and matches your signature on file. If you received assistance voting the ballot, then the signature of the person who helped you must also be on the return envelope.
If you have other questions, check out the terrific Michigan Voter Information Center on the Michigan Secretary of State’s website.
