Any registered voter in the State of Michigan may become part of the Permanent Absentee List. Please note that this is not a form to register to vote. Voters who are on the Permanent Absentee List will receive an Absentee Application before EVERY election. The Absentee Application is required and must be filled out in order to receive an Absentee Ballot. If you do not receive an application before every election, please contact the Clerk's Office.
