I am available Tuesday and Thursday, from 10:00AM until 1:00PM. Please contact me at (734) 475-2401 if these times do not work for you.

The right to vote is a privilege and we would like to see all our township residents exercise that privilege.

Absentee Ballots:

LYNDON TOWNSHIP REGISTERED VOTERS,

If You are registered to vote in Lyndon Township. This is the opportunity to Vote Absentee in any upcoming election  there’s no need to go to the polls on Election Day to have your vote counted.

Any registered voter may now apply to receive an Absent Voter Ballot as a consequence of the changes to the Michigan Constitution made by the passage of Proposition 3 in 2018. The advantages of voting absentee are multiple, including avoiding last-minute conflicts getting to the polls.

 If you would like to vote absentee in upcoming elections, including the NOVEMBER 5TH ELECTION simply "click" on the below link, download the application and either drop it off or mail it to the Lyndon Township Hall. We will add your name to our Permanent Absent Voter List.  (if you are unable to download the application come to the Township Hall during business hours and ask for one.)

 We will then mail you an Absent Voter Ballot Application prior to each election in Lyndon Township. When we receive your completed Application, we will then mail you an Absent Voter Ballot.

 Voting absentee is a safe and secure way to ensure you have time to vote no matter what the demands on your time on the actual election day. Of course, if you decide you want to vote at the polls instead of voting absentee, you may always do so.
