Elections

The City Clerk administers all local, state, national, and school elections in the City of Jonesville and provides voter records for all elections. All registered City residents vote at the Jonesville Fire Station, 114 W. Chicago Street.  Polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on election days.

Voting and Election Information

The State of Michigan maintains voting and election information online at the Michigan Voter Information Center.

You can check to verify that you are registered to vote, see a sample ballot, obtain an application for an absentee ballot, and more.

Absentee Ballots

You qualify to receive an absentee ballot if you:

  • Are 60 years of age or older
  • Expect to be absent from the community in which you are registered for the entire time the polls are open on Election Day
  • Are physically unable to attend the polls without assistance
  • Cannot attend the polls because of the tenants of your religion
  • Have been appointed an election inspector in a precinct other than where you reside
  • Cannot attend the polls because you are confined to jail awaiting arraignment or trial

To vote absentee, a registered voter must complete an Absent Voter Ballot Application.  Applications are available at City Hall or from the Michigan Voter Information Center. Submit it to the Clerk's Office at: 265 E. Chicago Street, Jonesville, MI 49250

Residents must be a registered voter at the time of application with a valid signature on file for verification of voter identity. You can receive a ballot by mail or in the office at the time of application, depending on how close to election day you make the request.

The City maintains a list of voters who have personally requested to automatically receive an absentee ballot application form. Application forms are automatically mailed to those on this list prior to an election. The City cannot automatically mail an absentee ballot to any voter; however, we are able to mail the application form used to request an absentee ballot. You can be added to this list by calling or e-mailing the Clerk’s Office with your request.

Register to Vote

You can register to vote at City Hall as long as your address where you reside is the same as your Michigan Driver's license or Michigan I.D. card. You may also register to vote at the local Secretary of State's office. Through the statewide Michigan Qualified Voter File, a change in your driver's license address will produce a change in your voter registration location and vice versa.

A voter must be registered to vote at least 30 days before the election in which they want to vote.
