Presidential Primary Early Voting Now Available at the Reo Elections Office and Foster Community Center starting February 17th

LANSING, MI – Starting Saturday, February 17th, until Sunday, February 25th, early voting will be available to all Lansing City voters. Similar to Election Day, voters will be issued a ballot to vote and can then insert their ballot directly into a tabulator at either of our early voting sites.

The Reo Elections Office, located at 1221 Reo Rd., offers free parking, a 24-hour secure drop box, and is conveniently located on CATA route #9. The Reo Elections Office’s early voting hours are:

Saturday, Feb. 17th – Tuesday, Feb. 20th 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Wednesday, Feb. 21st 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Thursday, Feb. 22nd – Sunday, Feb. 25th 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

The Foster Community Center, located at 200 N Foster Ave., which is located on CATA route #1, has the following early voting hours:

Saturday, Feb. 17th – Sunday, Feb. 25th 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

“As we get closer to Election Day, early voting is an excellent option with later hours on Wednesday evenings and during the last two weekends before the election,” said Lansing City Clerk Chris Swope. “It is very similar to the Election Day experience for the voter.”

Those who still need to register to vote, or update their voter registration, must register in person at their local clerk’s office or one of our early voting sites. Proof of residency must be provided at the time of registration to be eligible to vote in the February 27th Presidential Primary Election.

All absentee ballots must be received by 8 p.m. on Election Day. Voters who choose to return their ballots by US Mail are advised to mail them no later than Monday, February 20th, per the USPS. Voters may also return their ballot to any City of Lansing Ballot Drop Box or either of the City Clerk’s Offices by 8 p.m. on Election Day. Secure drop boxes are available within 1.5 miles of any Lansing resident, and they are checked daily from now until Election Night. To find the closest location, visit or call the Clerk’s Office at (517) 483-4131.
