Michigan Department of State online platform now provides voters with an additional method of applying for an accessible electronic absent voter ballot. Blind voters and others with severe disabilities that prevent them from voting absent voter ballots privately and independently can now submit an accessible absent voter ballot application online at Michigan.gov/Vote. Use of the online application requires a Michigan diver's license or state ID.
Voters who request accessible electronic absent voter ballots for the August Election will be emailed an electronic ballot that can be marked on an electronic device using their own assistive technology. Voters will then print it, place it in an envelope, sign the back of the envelope, and mail or deliver the envelope to the local clerk so that it arrives by 8 p.m. on Tuesday, August 4.
Voters can also download an accessible application to vote absentee that does not require a driver's license or state ID. Voters using this option can provide either a driver's license number, state ID number, or the last 4 digits of their social security number, and then email the application to their local clerk. This downloadable application is also available at Michigan.gov/vote by clicking the link to https://www.michigan.gov/documents/sos/Michigan_Acessible_Electronic_Absent_Voter_Ballot_Application_August_695058_7.pdf
