What is early voting?

In November 2022, Michigan voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment that gives voters the right to vote early and in person at early voting sites before statewide and federal elections. Communities may also choose to provide early voting for local elections.

Early voting allows a voter to cast a ballot before Election Day, in an experience similar to voting on Election Day.

During the early voting period, voters are issued a ballot and can then insert their ballot directly into a tabulator at their early voting site.

All qualified electors have the right to cast a ballot beginning the second Saturday before an election and ending the Sunday before the election.

Early Voting Site:
Mason County District Library
204 E. State Street
Scottville, MI 49454

Early Voting Hours:
8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Polling Locations on Election Day:

Voters should check their voter identification card for precinct number and polling location or contact the Clerk's office for an updated voter identification card.
