Our City Clerk and election workers are dedicated to ensuring your voice is counted in every election. The City of East Grand Rapids provides the following three options for residents choosing to exercise their right to vote via absentee ballot:
These three options are the safest, most reliable means of submitting an absentee ballot in EGR.
During business hours, residents can call 616.949.2110 for assistance in dropping off their ballot.
Once received at City Hall, absentee ballots are kept sealed in their envelopes in a locked room until election day when they are opened by a team of election workers and fed into a tabulator to be counted.
As a reminder, if you would like to register to vote online or at the Secretary of State, you must do so by Oct. 18. Once this deadline has passed, you will need to register at City Hall.
For additional information on voting in EGR, please refer to our Election FAQ webpage or contact the Clerk’s Office at 616.949.2110.
