You can vote by absentee ballot in the State of Michigan if you are age sixty (60) or older, unable to vote without assistance, will be out of town on election day, in jail awaiting arraignment or trial, unable to vote at the polls for religious reasons, or if you are appointed to work as an election inspector outside of your voting precinct. However, if you register to vote by mail and you have never voted in the state of Michigan before, you must appear in person in order to vote, unless you are disabled, age sixty (60) or older, temporarily living overseas, or you have appeared in your city or township clerk’s office in order to request an absentee ballot prior to the election.
