[ARCHIVED] Return Absentee Ballots Soon for August 2 Primary Election

July 22, 2022 – With the August 2 Primary Election less than two weeks away, registered voters in the City of Midland whom plan to submit their votes by absentee ballot are reminded to return their voted ballots to the Midland City Clerk’s Office as soon as possible. Completed absentee ballots must be received by the City Clerk’s Office by 8 p.m. on Election Day in order to be counted. 

 Voters should return their ballots to the City Clerk’s Office by placing it inside the included white envelope with a purple stripe on the left side. The envelope must be signed by the voter in the appropriate area in order to be counted. 

 For ballots returned by mail, return postage is required to mail back an absentee ballot. As the City Clerk’s Office recommends allowing a week mailing time for returning voted ballots by mail, it is recommended that any ballots that have not been mailed at this time be returned in person. A drive-up ballot drop box is available at the Larkin Street entrance to City Hall for registered voters in the City of Midland to submit absentee voter applications and ballots in a contactless format. Residents who live in a township outside of the City of Midland should not use this drop box and should return their ballots to their township clerk.

Voters should not use the payment drop box inside the doors of City Hall to return absentee ballot applications and ballots as they will not fit and may become damaged and unable to be processed.

Requests to have an absent voter ballot mailed must be received by the City Clerk’s office no later than 5 p.m. the Friday before the election (Friday, July 29 for the August 2 Primary Election). Voters whom are registered to vote at their current address can request an absent voter ballot in person at the City Clerk’s office anytime up to 4 p.m. on the day prior to the election. Residents who are registering to vote or updating their address in person on Election Day can request an absent voter ballot at the same time. Voters whom request an absentee ballot the day before the election or on Election Day must vote the ballot in the City Clerk’s office.

Absentee ballot applications will be processed in the order they were received and by precinct. To track if an application has been received, a ballot has been mailed, or if a ballot has been delivered back to the Clerk’s Office, visit the Michigan Voter Information Website (MVIC) found at

For questions or more information on how to obtain an absentee ballot, visit or contact the Midland City Clerk’s Office at 989-837-3310 or
