CLINTON TOWNSHIP – Clinton Township Clerk Kim Meltzer announced today the Clerk’s office will be open to issue and receive absentee ballots on Saturdays in October before Election Day Nov. 3.
“This is the first time the Clerk’s office will open on multiple Saturdays before an election,” said Meltzer. “We’re required to be open on the Saturday right before Election Day, but with so many residents choosing to vote absentee, I feel it’s necessary to accommodate them on as many weekends as we can,” she said.
Saturday hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 17 and Oct. 24, and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 31.
Earlier this month, Meltzer encouraged residents to return their absentee ballots by utilizing one of six secure collection drop boxes located throughout the Township. Locations include:
The collection boxes are emptied by election staff daily, including weekends. “Using one of our Collection Drop Boxes will guarantee your ballot is received by Election Day,” said Meltzer.
Absentee ballots are pre-processed on Nov. 2 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Clinton Township Senior Center, located at 40730 Romeo Plank Rd. Ballots are processed according to Public Act 177 of 2020, sealed, and prepared for tabulation at 7 a.m. on Election Day, Nov. 3, 2020.
