I’m on the permanent list, why didn’t I receive a ballot?

There are two permanent lists currently in effect.  The first list is the Permanent Absentee Application List.  Voters on this list will receive an application to vote absentee prior to each election.  This application must be returned to the local clerk in order for a ballot to be sent.  The second list is the Permanent Ballot List, which voters may sign-up for to receive an absentee ballot in all future elections after completing a one time application.  It is important to know which list you are on to know what you need to do to receive your ballot.  

If you are on the Permanent Ballot List and have not received your ballot, or have your returned your absentee ballot application and have not received your ballot, please call the Office of the City Clerk at (269) 329-4511.
