State Blames Technology Error for Returned Absentee Ballots
Voters have been discovering the unexpected surprise in their mailbox.
The Department of State believes a technology error somewhere in the process could be to blame.
If you do get your ballot back, try mailing it again, or hand-deliver it to your local clerk.
This year, all Michiganders are eligible to vote absentee and everyone is able to register to vote online.
If you have recently changed your address, you will need to register that change as well.
