As part of an effort to make voting as easy as possible, City of Lansing voters may vote an absentee ballot in person this Sunday.  

When: Sunday, October 27, 12 noon to 4:00 pm and Saturday, November 2, 2013 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m

(The building, which formerly housed the National Guard headquarters, is south of Mt. Hope and next to Washington Park; go around to the back of the building and enter through the double doors.)

1. Being 60 years of age or older,

2. Physically unable to attend the polls without assistance of another,

3. Is an appointed precinct worker in a precinct other than the precinct where the voter lives,

4. Expects to be absent from the community in which the voter is registered for the entire time the polls are open on Election Day,

5. Cannot attend the polls because of the tenets of the voter’s religion, or

6. Cannot attend the polls because the voter is confined to jail awaiting arraignment or trial.

“I want to give Lansing residents every opportunity possible to cast their ballot,” said Chris Swope, Lansing City Clerk. “That’s why we’re pleased to offer in-person absentee voting for Lansing residents on two weekend days.”
