So Far, More Than 11K Absentee Ballots Received in West Bloomfield
Local clerks offices open Saturday to accommodate absentee voters.
If you are planning to vote by absentee ballot, you are not alone. With just days to go before the Nov. 6 general election, more than 11,000 West Bloomfield residents have returned absentee ballots as of Friday, according to Township Deputy Clerk Joe Munem.
Munem said that of 15,437 absentee ballots issued, 11,320 have been returned (73 percent). The Township Clerk's office in Town Hall is open between 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday to accommodate absentee voters.
It was a similar story Friday in Sylvan Lake, where 228 absentee ballots have been received out of 328 issued (70 percent), as well as Keego Harbor, where 125 absentee ballots were returned out of 198 issued (63 percent), and Orchard Lake Village, where 454 absentee ballots were returned out of 613 issued (74 percent).
A voter eligible to vote by absent voter ballot may also vote in person at their hometown clerk’s office any time up to 4 p.m. the day before the election.
All absent voter ballots must be received by the clerk’s office not later than 8 p.m. on Election Day.
