Voting by absentee ballot is easy as 1-2-3. The Michigan Secretary of State has a page on What You Need to Know About Absentee Voting on its web site.   
1.  Find out if you are registered.
   Go to www.michigan.gov/vote, and fill in your name, birth month/year, and your zip code to find out if you are a registered voter. If you are not registered, you can register by mail, at your city, village, or township clerk's office, or at the Jackson County Clerk's Office (312 S. Jackson, 49201).
2.   Fill out and mail in an absentee voter ballot application.
   Fill out an  absentee voter ballot application form (available on the Secretary of State web site), then mail it to your local city, village, or township clerk's office. Plan on doing this well before election day (today!). Although the actual ballot does not need to be received by your local clerk's office until Aug. 7, you need to allow time for the application form to be received by the clerk's office, for you to receive the absentee ballot from the clerk, and for the absentee ballot to be received by the clerk after you have filled it out.
3.   Mail in your absentee ballot
   You should reciever your absentee voter ballot by mail after the ballots have been printed. Make your choices on the ballot, then drop it off or mail it to your local city, village, or township clerk's office. The ballot needs to be recieved at the clerk's office by 8:00 p.m. on the day of the election.
