The new Permanent Ballot List is Very popular as Thousands of Lansing City Ballots will be Mailed

Lansing - Over 14,000 absentee ballots are being prepared to be mailed on Thursday, September 28, for the Lansing City General Election so voters can vote from their home or temporary residence.

“We are seeing the vast majority of these voters taking advantage of joining the new Permanent Mail Ballot list,” said Lansing City Clerk Chris Swope “and will never miss an election again because they will automatically be mailed a ballot, as long as they are registered to vote in Michigan.” Just over 12,000 of the 14,000 plus ballots to be mailed on September 28 are from voters who choose to be on the permanent ballot list. Voters still have until Nov. 3 to request a ballot to be mailed at

At the same website, voters can find the closest drop box, check on the status of their absentee application, view the list of candidates, and so much more. Voters must return their ballot by 8pm on Election Day to be counted. 24-hour, secure ballot drop boxes are located within 1.5 miles of any Lansing resident or voters can return their ballot via mail with postage paid.

Lansing City Voters can also come to the South Washington Office Complex, 2500 S. Washington Ave, or Lansing City Hall, 124 West Michigan Ave., to pick up an absentee ballot in-person.
