Election Information

The Clerk’s office is responsible for conducting all elections within the township.  This includes voting at the national, state, county and township levels and includes elections for local school districts, libraries and special elections.  In this function the Clerk is responsible for voter registration and maintaining the list of registered voters.  Additionally, absentee ballots are requested from the Clerk.

The Michigan Voter Information Center is a great resource and provides an assortment of information related to voter registration and election administration in Michigan.

The Livingston County Clerk also provides a wealth of election information, from election results, proposals, candidate and delegate filing information and deadlines on their Election Information page.

Voter Registration and Absentee Voting Recent Laws

With the passage of Proposal 18-3 in November 2018, an unregistered elector (or registered elector who has moved) who wishes to participate in an upcoming election now has the following options:

•  Register to vote in person at a Secretary of State branch office, a designated voter registration agency, the voter’s county, city, or township clerk’s office or by mail no later than the 15th day prior to the election.

•  Register to vote during the 14 days prior to the election, including Election Day, by applying in person at his or her city or township clerk’s office. Residency verification is required. Acceptable documents include driver’s license, state ID card, current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check, or other government document. Documents must have name and current address. Voters registering on election day can get a ballot and vote that day.

•  Any registered voter now has the ability to vote by absentee (aka mail) ballot without having to declare a reason and voters can be added to a permanent absentee list to receive applications automatically.

Absentee Voting

PERMANENT ABSENTEE LIST- This list is to receive a mailed application for an absentee ballot for all future elections; we do NOT automatically mail a ballot! It is illegal to mail ballots without a signed request.  If you want to be on the list to receive applications, you may request that by any of the following methods:

•  Online: Michigan Secretary of State
•  Email: clerk@tyronetownship.us
•  Phone: 810-629-8631 (Clerk’s department)
•  Mail: this form

APPLICATION- The application must always still be signed and submitted to the Township Clerk before each election in order to receive a ballot in the mail. By law, ballots cannot be mailed without a signed application. Applications may be returned by hand, via postal mail, fax, or email, as long as a signature is visible. A ballot will be mailed to you after the application is received.

RECEIVING AN ABSENTEE BALLOT IN PERSON- Voters may visit the Clerk department and receive a ballot in person. Photo ID or affidavit is required. By law, we can NOT give out a spouse’s ballot if not present.

ADDRESSES- By law, ballots can NOT be forwarded to another mail address. If you will be out of town or need your ballot mailed to an address other than your residence, please include the temporary address on your application.

Military or Oversea Voters

Military or overseas civilian voters (eligible to register and vote in Michigan) can receive a ballot by e-mail or fax to easily vote.  (The voter ballot MUST still be returned by postal mail for security purposes.)  OVERSEAS VOTERS may obtain an application to vote absentee here.  Additional information about the Federal Voting Assistance Program can be found here.

By law mailed absentee ballots are NOT able to be forwarded by the post office.  If you are out of town and need your ballot mailed to address other than your residence, please include the temporary address on your application.

In an OPEN PRIMARY voters receive a ballot with a column listing each party’s candidates.  Voters then decide which party they wish to participate in by voting only in the column of their party. Voting for candidates in more than one party will void the entire partisan ballot.

Voters in a CLOSED PRIMARY must state the party they wish to vote BEFORE receiving a ballot.  The ballot given only shows the party of choice.
