Absent Voter Ballot Information
**Updated Absentee Voter Information**
All current absentee voter's on the permanent application list will receive the below application. With the implementations of Prop. 2 and State of Michigan guidelines, there is now a new permanent ballot list that absentee voter's may join.
In red on the application is "Complete to join permanent list: I want to vote absentee in all elections. Automatically send me an absent voter ballot for all elections."
Selecting this will remove the Absentee Voter Application resident's have previously received - with the selection of the new permanent list you will automatically have a BALLOT mailed to you for all future elections.
To clarify, if you select this permanent list you will no longer receive an application to vote by mail prior to the election, you will automatically be issued a ballot, by mail.
*This is in accordance with the State of Michigan, the City of Flat Rock has to follow the State Guidelines and their processes.*

All registered voters have the option to vote absentee (by mail); voting absentee is optional, not mandatory. If you would like to receive an absentee ballot, you must return your SIGNED application to the City Clerk's Office by mail or by putting it in the drop-box next to the flagpole in the City Hall parking lot.

Applications for absent voter ballots for the Election to be held in the City of Flat Rock, will be received in the Office of the City Clerk from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The City Clerk's Office will be open the Saturday, prior to the election from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. which is the deadline for acceptance of absentee ballot applications to be voted outside the City Clerk's Office. The Monday before an election at 4:00 p.m. is the deadline for applications for absentee ballots to be voted in person at the City Clerk's Office. Emergency absent voter applications will be issued to any registered elector at any time prior to 4:00 p.m. on Election Day if he or she shall have become physically disabled or shall be absent from the city because of sickness or death in the family which has made it impossible to apply for absent voter ballots by the statutory deadline.

Public Accuracy Testing
The Public Accuracy Test is conducted to demonstrate the computer program used to tabulate the votes cast at the election meets the  requirements of law. The meeting is open to the public and any interested citizen may attend.

New Voter Identification Requirement In Effect
Due to a recent court ruling, every Michigan voter who offers to vote in the polls must comply with the requirement by showing picture identification or signing an affidavit attesting that he or she is not in possession of picture identification. (See MCL 168.523 for picture identification requirement).
Voters can satisfy the picture identification requirement by showing a Michigan driver's license or a Michigan personal identification card.
Voters who do not possess either document may show any of the following forms of picture identification as long as they are current:
  • Driver's license or personal identification card issued by another state.
  • Federal or state government-issued photo identification.
  • U.S. passport.
  • Military identification card with photo.
  • Student identification with photo from a high school or an accredited institution of higher education.
  • Tribal identification card with photo.
Voters without picture identification: Michigan election law anticipates that not all voters will have picture identification. Voters who do not bring picture identification to the polls or do not possess picture identification can vote like any other voter by signing an affidavit.
