Absentee Voting

If you would like to register to be on our Permanent Absent Voter List, please click on the link for the Permanent Absent Voter List Request under Related Documents on this page, and print the card, fill it out and mail it to: Oceola Township Clerk, 1577 N Latson Road, Howell, Michigan 48843. This will allow us to send out Absent Voter Ballot Applications automatically for all elections. Then you decide if you need to vote as an absent voter or at the poll. We will only send your ballot upon request in writing with your signature, which is usually done with an absent voter ballot application.

There are many changes occurring in our state at this time.  One of which is that the Secretary of State has made the decision to mail all registered voters an absentee ballot application. The Oceola Township Clerks Department will remain mailing the applications to those that are on the permanent absent voters list as well as any voter that requests an application. Our main goal is to not cause any confusion for our voters.  If you wish to vote absentee please sign the application and return it to the clerks office.  If you would like to vote in-person at the polls please do not return the application.

Voter Participation Center Mailing

The Bureau of Elections has received word that the Voter Participation Center (VPC) and Center for Voter Information (CVI) will once again be mailing voter registration forms to possible unregistered voters across the state. When applicants return completed forms to the BOE, we will sort them and send them to the appropriate local clerk.

Other than the approval of the voter registration form, the BOE doesn’t have any other connection to this project.

If voters have questions regarding how these organizations obtained their nonregistration or registration information, direct them to VPC via email info@voterparticipation.org or telephone: 877-255-6750 or CVI’s website. The VPC logo seen above may help you when communicating with your voters.
