How will you submit your ballot in 2024?

Michigan Vote

MARQUETTE, Mich. – Voters this year will have multiple options in terms of how they can submit their vote across the U.P.

Marquette City Clerk Kyle Whitney noted that after the passing of Proposal 2 in 2022, the methods for submitting votes has undergone changes.

“It implemented early voting. it implemented a permanent ballot list for absentee voters. So, absentee voters can now tell us they want a ballot for every election moving forward and we will just send them a ballot. They won’t have to fill out an application they don’t have to touch base,” said Whitney.

Unique to the presidential primary, Whitney reminded permanent absentee voters that once they have filled out a form sent to them identifying which party ballot they wish to vote on, they will receive their mail-in ballot.

“You’ll actually be able to go in for nine days ahead of the election and cast an early ballot in our early voting site. Additionally, voters for the February presidential primary are going to have to tell us what party they want a ballot in,” said Whitney.

Whitney further encouraged voters to verify online via the state’s website to determine locations at which they can vote.

“Now, we don’t really have as many people that are not registered, but what we see now is people who know they are registered and might not know where they are registered. If you can find out ahead of time, look up your registration address. If you know you are going to want to vote in Marquette check that ahead of time.”

Early voting will run Saturday, Feb. 17 through Sunday, Feb. 25. Absentee voters will need to have submitted ballots by 8 p.m. on the 27 when polls close.
