FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

To vote in an election, a resident must register. To become registered to vote, you can visit the township office, register online, or at any Secretary of State branch office if you are 18 or older and are a legal citizen.

ABSENTEE VOTING

DID YOU KNOW?  You can skip the line on Election Day and vote by mail?  With the passage of Proposal 18-3, new changes are available for Michigan Voters.  One of the biggest changes is that ALL eligible registered voters in Michigan may now request an absent voter ballot without providing a reason.  You can also request to be placed on the permanent absentee voter list to save a step in the future. Absent voter list means that you will receive an application for each and every election you eligible to vote. Visit or call the Pulaski Township Clerk’s office to request an application prior to any Election, request to be placed on the permanent list, or if you have any questions about the process.

HOW CAN I BECOME AN ELECTION WORKER?

There are applications for election workers available at the township office. You may stop by and pick up an application or call and one can be mailed to you. On the application, you must stipulate your party affiliation. This is a legal requirement.

Election workers are required to attend certification training to work in the polls. There is a county election training meeting which will certify the worker for a two-year period. 

On the day of the election, workers must arrive at the polls at 6:15 a.m. to set up the precincts and voting equipment in preparation for the opening of the polls at 7:00 a.m. It is not unusual to have voters standing in line before 7:00 a.m. waiting to vote. After the polls close at 8:00 p.m., the election workers tear down the voting equipment and pack up all of the supplies which must be returned to the Township office that evening. Election workers are paid an hourly rate of $10.00. It is a long day working an election, but many workers enjoy seeing the people in the community and saying hello to their neighbors. There is also a certain amount of pride in being part of working an election. If you are interested and have the time available, please request an application via e-mail or contact the Township office by phone.

Precinct 1 – voting at the Pulaski Township Hall – 12363 Folks Road, Hanover
