City Seeks Resident Input About Early Voting

Online Survey Open Through May 22, 2023

Archived News Release: April 11, 2023 -

With the approval of Proposition 2 in 2022, Michigan will be introducing nine days of early voting as another option for voters to conveniently cast ballots in statewide federal elections. The City of Ann Arbor is now asking for resident input as the city clerk's office prepares to implement early voting for the 2024 election cycle.

A six-question, anonymous survey has launched to help inform the city of how voters prefer to cast their ballots and their general awareness of the new early voting option. The survey can be found at and is open through Monday, May 22, 2023.

“In light of these new changes coming, the City of Ann Arbor plans to use this feedback from city residents to make the voting process convenient, easy to understand and accessible to all who wish to cast a ballot," said Ann Arbor City Clerk Jacqueline Beaudry. Early voting centers will allow voters to come early to vote and tabulate their ballots ahead of Election Day thereby eliminating long lines and wait times. This is a change from the previous system that only allowed early voting using an absentee ballot that was sealed in an envelope and not tabulated until Election Day. ​
