2017 ELECTION INFORMATION.
The Township Clerks’ office is responsible for the administration of all governmental and school elections held in Monroe Charter Township. Residents are encouraged to register to vote so that their voice can be heard on Election Day. Applications to become a registered voter are available at the Township Clerks’ Office, located at 4925 East Dunbar Road, Monroe, MI 48161.
In 2017, three election dates are authorized by the State of Michigan:
May 2, 2017: We currently have no election scheduled for this date.
August 8, 2017: We currently have no election scheduled for this date.
November 7, 2017: We currently have no election scheduled for this date.
In order to be eligible to vote, you must be registered to vote at least 30 days prior to the election. Your voter registration remains current as long as you are residing at the address in which you registered.
It is important to note that each time you move or change your residency, you must register to vote at the new address.
Monroe Charter Township has established six election voting precincts, where citizens can vote their ballot on Election Day. Each precinct has been established to provide efficient service for all Township residents; precincts are placed where the majority of citizens reside, the precincts are handicapped accessible, and the precincts are well maintained and clean.
For each election, registered voters have the right to request an absentee ballot, which allows the voter to participate in the election without actually visiting the polling location. To request an absentee ballot, contact the Clerk’s office prior to Election Day and an application can be sent to your home.
Polls open at 7:00 a.m. and close at 8:00 p.m. Any qualified voter standing in line at 8:00 p.m. when the polls close will be allowed to vote.
Please note that on Election Days, the longest lines are normally at 7:00 a.m., lunch hour, and at 5:00 p.m. Your waiting time will be greatly minimized if you visit the polling during “non-peak” hours.
I hope this information has been beneficial to you. If you have any questions regarding elections held in Monroe Charter Township, please feel free to contact the Clerk’s office at (734) 241-6574.
