Absentee Voting

The State of Michigan allows for absentee voting in any election for every registered elector, no reason required.  Applications to vote absentee may be requested as needed for any election.

Additionally, under the Michigan Constitution, any registered voter may have an absent voter ballot sent to the voter before each election by submitting a signed absent voter ballot application covering all future elections. 

To submit a completed City of Highland Park absent voter application and/or City of Highland Park absent voter ballot outside of normal office hours, please use the Ballot Drop-Box located in the municipal parking lot on California St.
