Voting


HOW DO I VOTE?

Voting is easy as 1-2-3. You’ll find all the information you need on the Jackson County Clerk's Office or the Michigan Secretary of State web sites. 

Make sure you are registered to vote.

    If you haven’t voted in a few years, find out if you're registered. Go to www.michigan.gov/vote. If you are registered, they’ll tell you which precinct you vote in and show you the location on a map.

   If you are not registered, use the form available on the Secretary of State web site to register by mail, or, contact your city, village, or township clerk's office.


VOTE EARLY!!! Request an Absentee Ballot from your local clerk TODAY!

Find out where you vote.

   School elections are no longer held at your local school. Go to the precinct where you would normally vote. To find out where you vote, go to www.michigan.gov/vote, fill in your name, birth month/year, and your zip code (same as #1 above). The site will tell you where to vote and show you the location on a map. You can also call the jackson County Clerk's office at 768-6759.


Consider voting by absentee ballot.

   Are you going to be out of town or busy on August 7?  If you think you might be, consider voting by absentee ballot. To vote by absentee ballot, fill out an absentee voter ballot application form, and send it to your local city, village, or township clerk's office. Plan on doing well before election day.

The actual ballot will be mailed to you, then you fill it out (vote YES on the JCISD Special Education Enhancement Millage Proposal!), and mail it back or give it to your local city, village or township clerk's office by August 7. (You may also just show up at your clerk’s office, fill out the ballot, and you’re done!).

Learn everything you need to know about absentee voting at the Secretary of State web site.
