Mailing It In: Vote Prolife in Michigan primary election that is on August 4

Anyone can now vote absentee

By Right to Life of Michigan

The primary election is on Tuesday, August 4. Don’t miss it!

In many districts that lean heavily toward one political party or the other, the primary election decides who will win in November. So, prolife voters who fail to turn out for the primary election may find themselves with nobody prolife to vote for in the November general election.

Voting in Michigan is easier than ever. Because of changes in state law in 2018, anyone can vote absentee. So, nobody has an excuse for not making their voice heard.

Primary Election Details

Primary voters will receive one ballot, and vote in either the Democratic or Republican presidential primaries. Voters cannot vote in both primaries. At the bottom of the ballot, there may be a section with non-partisan candidates that are for both voters of both parties (judges for example).

Absentee Voting Instructions

No-reason absentee voting has some advantages. If you’re sure about your vote, you can get it done right away from the comfort of your office desk or kitchen table. You can have the RLM-PAC endorsement list right in front of you, rather than printing it off to take to the polling booth.

If you want to “vote from home,” here’s what you need to know:

  • No reason is needed to request an absentee ballot.
  • Get the application form online here (or from your local clerk):
  • Return the application to your local clerk by mail, fax, or e-mail.
  • An absentee ballot will be mailed to you. Fill it out and send it back via mail or in-person drop off to your local clerk.
  • Absentee ballots must be returned by 8 p.m. on Election Day. Don’t delay, and don’t drop it in the mail the morning of Election Day!

You can also vote early in your local clerk’s office. Visit the office, request your absentee ballot, and fill it out right there.

You can also sign up to be on a permanent absentee voter list; an application for an absentee ballot will be sent to you before each election. Use the absentee application form or contact your local clerk to be added to the permanent list.

Make sure you know who the prolife candidates are! Create your own personalized prolife ballot to find the RLM-PAC endorsed candidates appearing on your ballot.
