PUBLIC NOTICE AND VOTER INFORMATION

VoteNOVEMBER 3, 2020 GENERAL ELECTION                   

The Clerk's office has sent out the absentee voter ballots for the November Election    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  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 distancing 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 9367 registered voters in Riverview.  We have sent 3423 ballots to be mailed September 23rd 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 37% of the voters and the other 63% of the voting public possibly will attend the polling places if they do not vote absentee.  To date, using these figures, we estimate that approximately 900 voters per precinct will attend the polls.  We will update these figures regularly for your review.  

There will be four 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, checks the ballot stub to the ballot number on the envelope and removes the ballot sleeve with the ballot inside without viewing the ballot 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 and places it in a secrecy sleeve.
Station 2: The person at station 2 removes the ballot, removes the stub flattens the ballots and places it into Station 3 container.  Checks ballot for voter corrections and deposits it in Station 3 to be tabulated
Station 3: 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 without the voter's signature.)  

When marking your Ballots:    If voter makes this mistake, please come to the clerk's office to spoil your 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
