REGISTER TO VOTE:
If you would like to register to vote, you may save the Voter Registration Form on the last page. Fill out the necessary lines and mail it to the:
City of Westland
36601 Ford Road
Westland, MI 48185
IMPORTANT: If you register by mail or e-mail and are a first time Michigan voter, you must vote at your designated Polling location and show your identification on Election Day. In order to qualify to vote on Election Day, you must be registered at least 30 days prior to an election.
You may also register to vote at any Secretary of State’s Office.
PERMANENT ABSENTEE VOTER:
The requirements to become a permanent Absentee Voter are as follows:
- Be age 60 or older, or
- Be physically disabled from going to the Polling place
You must notify the Clerk’s office by phone or mail that you meet one of the above criteria and would like to be placed on the permanent Absentee Voter list. You will then be mailed an “Application for a Ballot” for every election. If you wish a ballot for that election, mail or drop off the application to the Clerk’s office at City Hall. A ballot will be sent to you only after an application for a ballot is received even if you are on the Permanent Absentee Voter list.
You may apply for an absentee ballot for an election even if you don’t meet the above requirements. If you think you will not be in town to vote on Election Day or unable to get to the polls on election day for any reason, you may request an application for a ballot by phone, mail or in person at the Clerk’s office.
NO ONE WILL RECEIVE A BALLOT UNTIL WE HAVE AN “APPLICATION FOR A BALLOT” ON FILE IN THE CLERK’S OFFICE.
