The East Lansing City Clerk's Office maintains an Automatic Application List for registered East Lansing voters who would like to automatically receive an absent voter ballot application before each election scheduled in East Lansing.
Additionally, with the passage of the statewide ballot proposal 18-3 in November 2018, all eligible and registered voters in Michigan may now request an absent voter ballot without providing a reason.
Attention: Military and overseas voters should visit www.fvap.gov to fill out a Federal Post Card Application (FPCA.) The application may be mailed or emailed directly to the City Clerk's Office, and is valid for all elections during a calendar year. A new application must be filled out and submitted annually, if the voter is still serving in the military or is living or visiting outside of the country.
