CITY OF GRANDVILLE

ABSENTEE VOTER COUNTING BOARD
NUMBER OF CHALLENGER NOTICE
This notice is posted in compliance with the State of Michigan, Secretary of State’s manual titled “The Appointment, Rights, and Duties of Election Challengers and Poll Watchers”, which specifies on page 8, paragraph 2 that; “The clerk must make publicly available the number of challengers each credentialing organization will be allowed to field in the absent voter ballot processing facility at least seven calendar days prior to the election.”  Michigan Election Law, Act 116 of 1954 section 168.730 Designation, qualification, and number of challengers states, “A political party, incorporated organization, or organized committee of interested citizens may designate not more than 1 challenger to serve at each counting board.”  For the November 8, 2022 General Election, 6 organizations have been approved by the Kent County Clerk to field election challengers. The City of Grandville will hold 1 Absentee Voter Counting Board at City Hall, located at 3195 Wilson Ave SW, Grandville, Michigan, and will allow each organization or political party to field 1 election challenger for said counting board. The City of Grandville is not participating in the pre-processing of absentee ballots prior to election day.  A challenger may not enter the absent voter ballot processing facility without first taking an oath and signing a document acknowledging the oath. Any person who violates this oath is guilty of a felony.
Once tallying of votes has begun on Election Day, challengers serving at an absent voter ballot processing facility, like all persons present in an absent voter ballot processing facility, are sequestered at the facility and cannot leave until the close of polls at 8 p.m. on Election Day. No electronic devices, including phones, laptops, tablets, or smartwatches, can be used in the absent voter ballot processing facility while absent voter ballots are being processed until the close of polls on Election Day. A challenger who uses an electronic device in an absent voter ballot processing facility between the beginning of tallying and the close of polls may be ejection from the facility.

AM I REGISTERED TO VOTE
Look up your voter information and track your ballot by visiting the Michigan Voter Information Center(MVIC) https://mvic.sos.state.mi.us/Home/VoteAtHome .ABSENTEE VOTING
Applications for Absent Voter's (AV) Ballot are mailed automatically for each election to those that have requested to be made a permanent absentee voter.  Absent Voter Applications can be returned via email to elections@cityofgrandville.com, via mail, in-person during normal business hours, or leave your application in the white drop box located in the parking lot of City Hall. 

Complete and submit your Absentee Ballot Application online through the Michigan Voter Information Center (MVIC) 
Absent Voter's Ballots are mailed out to voters and can be returned via mail, in-person during normal business hours, or leave your ballot in the white drop box located in the parking lot of City Hall.  This secured box is under 24 hour video surveillance and is emptied every hour and also over the weekends.

It’s the season for confusing mailings about voting from sources other than our office.  If you receive mail that says you aren’t registered to vote, that may or may not be accurate. Political parties and non-profit groups don’t always have correct information about who is or isn’t registered, and they are sending out mailers that can be confusing. Voters who aren’t sure of their voter registration status, can visit Mi.gov/Vote or contact our office at (616) 531-3030 or email clerk@cityofgrandville.com

If you submitted an absentee ballot application earlier this year (and checked the box for the November election), then you do not need to fill out another one – even if you receive additional applications in the mail from political parties or non-profit groups.  In the spring, we mailed absentee ballot applications (pictured below) that covered both the August and November elections to the voters on our automatic application list and many have been submitted by voters.

From now until November 8th, our residents will likely be receiving a lot of mail encouraging absentee voting from a variety of sources. Voters who are not sure if they have already submitted an application for this election, can check Mi.gov/Vote Voters can use applications from any source or apply online at Mi.gov/Vote Applications require the voter's signature, which will be verified at our office.

If you receive a mailing about voting, check the return address to see who sent it out. Submitting duplicate applications creates extra work for our staff when we are already very busy preparing for the election. We appreciate voters “considering the source” of confusing mail.

The Grandville City Clerks Office  is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursdays 8 AM - 5 PM, Wednesday 8 Am - 6:30 PM and Friday 8 AM - 12 PM to assist with your election questions. 
AFTER HOURS DROP bOX
Applications AND  ballots can be returned to the white drop box located in the parking lot of City Hall. This box is secure and under 24 hour video surveillance.  It is checked multiple times throughout the day up until 8:00 PM on election Day.
