Absentee Voter Information
Looking to obtain an absentee ballot for the upcoming election?  You will need to fill out an application (see below).  

APPLICATION for ABSENTEE BALLOT - November 6, 2018 Election

Absentee Ballots Must be Requested
You must “request” an Absentee ballot for ALL Elections conducted by Northville Township.  

The DEADLINE to request an Absentee Ballot to be mailed is the SATURDAY prior to election day. The township clerk’s department is open from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM for this purpose the Saturday prior to every election.
Permanent Absentee List Information (PAL)
As a courtesy to our voters, and consistent with election law, the township maintains a PERMANENT ABSENTEE LIST, referred to as PAL.  All registered voters may request to be placed on the permanent absentee list (PAL) by calling the Clerks Department at 248-348-5825 or by completing and returning the PAL form. 

Prior to each election, voters on the PAL list are mailed an application to request an absentee ballot. The application must be signed by the voter (power of attorney is not accepted) and returned to the Clerks Department. Placement on the permanent absentee list (PAL) does not require that you vote absentee in all elections. If you plan to vote in person at your polling location, at any election, do not complete or return the form.

Looking to be placed on the permanent absentee list?  Please fill in the following application:
