PUBLIC NOTICE AND VOTER INFORMATION
VoteAUGUST 4, 2020 PRIMARY AND NOVEMBER 3, 2020 GENERAL ELECTIONS                   
 
The Clerk's office will be sending out the absentee voter ballots for the August Election in the next couple of weeks.  Due to Covid-19:  the State of Michigan Secretary of State and the City urges caution to voters who still plan on attending the polls in person on August 4 and November 3.  Though we will do our best to sanitize and create social distancing in our precinct polling places to protect the public and our election workers, the ultimate safety precaution is to vote absentee.  Due to the social distrancing and disinfecting between voters, the process will take longer than usual and voters may be in line longer.  Just to keep you updated on our process, there are 9243 registered voters in Riverview.  We have received 2325 applications for the November General Election thus far.  The past two Presidential Elections garnered an average of 68.37% of the registered voters votes.  If we take these numbers into effect, we have applications from 25% of the voters and the other 43% of the voting public will attend the polling places if they do not vote absentee.

There will be three Absentee County Boards sequestered and spaced out who follow protocol for complete anonymity of your ballot.  The following is the process of each counting board where opposite party workers are required for the checks and balances of each counting board (All election inspectors sequestered are required to take an oath and also submit their cell phones to the Clerk before entering sequestered area):
                                           Absentee Boards Processing of Ballots:
Station 1: Slits the voter's envelope and removes the ballot sleeve with the ballot inside and deposits it into Station 2  container which is opposite and staggered from Station 1. (In the case where the voter forgets to return the ballot sleeve, the Station 1 inspector turns over the envelope with the voter's name and has the inspector at Station 2 remove the ballot to maintain anonymity.
Station 2: The person at station 2 removes the ballot with the stub attached and places it into Station 3 container.
Station 3: The person at Station 3 flattens the ballots and removes the stubs and places into Station 4 Tabulator container to be tabulated.
Station 4: Ballots are tabulated as witnessed by all present.

The Clerk is required by Election Law to post the number of all ballots delivered to the absentee board when  at the opening of the counting process.  The Clerk is also required to post all additional absentee ballots returned throughout the day by 8:00 PM, so that the total ballots tabulated match the total number delivered.  (Exception:  Ballots that have stubs detached by the absentee voter are not counted nor are ballots without the voter's signature.)  

When marking your Ballots:  Ballots in the Primary Election's Partisan Section which voters may have cross-voted (meaning the voter marked a circle in the Democratic Section and then in the Republican Section) will cancel the votes for both the Partisan Sections.  All votes in the Non-partisan and Proposal Sections will still count.   Voter should concentrate when turning the ballot over to stay in the correct Party Section.  If voter does make this mistake, they can come to the clerk's office to spoil their ballot and receive a new one.  If the voter cannot make it to the Clerk's office, contact the clerk for further direction.

If you are interested in becoming an election inspector in the precincts or the absentee board, please fill out the application at the following link and send it to the City Clerk at elections@cityofriverview.com.
