All registered voters are now eligible to vote absentee if you have met the photo ID rule when you registered to vote. If you registered to vote in person at City Hall or Secretary of State office or have been voting at the polls since you registered to vote you have met the photo ID rule.
The absentee voting process can take place in person, by mail, or by using the drop box just outside the front door of City Hall.
If you would like to vote absentee in future elections, we can add you to a Permanent Voter List. For every election, we will then mail you a Michigan Absent Voter Ballot Application (required) for you to complete and return to us prior to each election. Requesting to vote by absentee for future elections doesn’t prohibit you from voting in person the day of the election. If you choose to vote in person for a particular election, then you won’t complete the Absentee Voter Ballot Application when it arrives in the mail.
In order to be placed on the Absentee Voter list, you may do one of the following:
1. Email a request to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com (include your name, address and year of birth)
2. Drop us a note through regular mail at City of Rockford, 7 S Monroe St., Rockford, MI 49341
3, Call City Hall at 616-866-1537 and request to be added to the Absentee Voter List
Benefits of being added to the Permanent Absent Voter List:
