In 2022, Proposal 22-2 was passed by Michigan voters, and it amended the Michigan Constitution to add several provisions regarding elections, including nine days of early in-person voting at all federal and state elections that will be put into effect beginning with the 2024 elections in the City of Traverse City.

What is Early In-Person Voting?

Early in-person voting allows the registered voter to cast their ballot in-person at an early voting site before the scheduled Election Day. Such a ballot that is cast during early in-person voting is inserted into the tabulator by the voter and therefore tabulated that day.

A voter may run their absentee ballot through a tabulator during Early In-Person Voting or at their precinct on election day  (and of course, you may still return the ballot to the City Clerk's Office by 8 pm on election day to have it tabulated by the Absent Voter Counting Board).

How is Early Voting Different from Absentee Voting?

Absentee voting, also referred to as mail-in voting, is a method that allows the registered voter to receive and submit their ballot by mail or in-person at their local Clerk’s Office. Absentee Ballots are tabulated on election day. As of 2018, all registered voters in Michigan may request an absentee ballot without providing a reason.
