Where do I Vote in person?

The Glen Arbor Township precinct is in the Town Hall gymnasium at 6394 W. Western Ave. Voting begins at 7:00 AM and continues until 8:00 PM. All individuals in line at 8:00 PM will be allowed to vote.

Absentee Voting

All absentee voters must complete an absentee ballot application prior to being sent an absentee voter ballot. You can download an absentee ballot application online by going to and selecting the “Absentee Voting” option located on the left panel of the page.

Easier yet, you may write a note, call, or stop by the office and speak to the Township Clerk to request to be added to the Permanent Absentee Voter list. The Permanent Absentee Voter list will then allow the Clerk to automatically send you a ballot application prior to each election.

The township Clerk can be reached by mail at P.O. Box 276, Glen Arbor, MI 49636, or by phone at (231) 334-3539 ext. 300, or by email at [email protected]
