Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson announced this week that she will mail postcards informing voters of their right to vote from home in the November presidential election. She is also encouraging residents to do so by applying online or at their local election clerk’s office. The postcards will be mailed from the Michigan Bureau of Elections to the 4.4 million active, registered voters who are not on a permanent absent-voter list and have not already applied to have their November ballot mailed to them. The mailing will be paid for with federal funding.
Michigan law allows voters to apply for their absentee ballot within 75 days of the election starting August 20. Clerks must begin mailing requested ballots to voters 40 days before the election on September 24.
