Less than two weeks from this year’s election, and a huge number of voters are requesting to vote absentee according to Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson.
“More than three million Michigan citizens have requested their ballot,” said Benson. “It’s really an extraordinary number, as we’ve been estimating all along that three million citizens would vote early.”
Benson called it remarkable.
“It shows we’re well on our way to having more people vote in this election than ever before.”
She is asking that no one mail in the ballot now and instead take it to the clerk’s office or a drop box.
