With August and November elections right around the corner, and since we’re still in the middle of the COVID-19 Pandemic and who knows when we’ll make our way out of that – this might be a good time to explore the idea of voting via absentee ballot. It’s the perfect way to make your vote count while practicing social distancing.

Township Clerk Becky Chown sent along a note and said that Peninsula Township is urging all registered voters who aren’t already on the Permanent Absentee Voter List to email her at [email protected] and ask to be placed on this list.

All registered voters who are on this list will receive an application and ballot by mail. Who knows – maybe we’ll be able to drive to the polls and vote by August and November. But if not, this is a great thing to get set up right now and make your vote count without having to leave your house.
