Elections
March 10, 2020 Presidential Primary Election 
The March 10, 2020 Presidential Primary Election will be held for the purpose of electing nominees for the Democratic and Republican Parties for the Office of the President of the United States, and to vote on the following proposal: 

  • WASHTENAW COMMUNITY COLLEGE PROPOSAL to authorize Washtenaw Community College to levy 1.00 mill for operating purposes for 10 years. Of the 1.00 mill, 0.9718 represents a renewal of the 1.00 mill authorization approved by the electors in 2008, which will expire with the 2020 tax levy and 0.0282 mill represents a restoration of the portion of the same authority which was reduced by application of the Headlee Amendment.

The official list of candidates and full text of this proposal can be found at washtenaw.org/elections or sample ballots may be viewed at mi.gov/vote

The 2020 Presidential Primary is designated a closed primary, just as it was in 2012 and 2016. Michigan Election Law requires voters wishing to participate in the March 10, 2020 Election to choose a Democratic ballot, a Republican ballot, or ballot without Presidential Primary (local issues only such as proposals) when voting absentee or at the polls on Election Day. While a voter must select a specific ballot, there is no political party registration in Michigan's voter registration system. 

Voter Registration 
The last day to register to vote in any manner other than in-person with the local clerk for the March 10, 2020 Election is Monday, February 24, 2020. After this date, anyone who qualifies as an elector may register to vote in person with proof of residency (MCL 168.492) at the Pittsfield Charter Township Clerk's Office, 6201 W. Michigan Avenue, Ann Arbor, MI 48108 at the following times:
  • Regular business hours: Monday - Friday from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
  • Saturday, March 7, 2020 from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
  • Election Day, March 10, 2020 from 7:00 AM - 8:00 PM

Absentee Voting 
To vote by Absent Voter Ballot, you must first submit a request through an Absent Voter Ballot Application, or through a written request. Absent Voter Ballot Applications may be submitted at the Clerk's Office through Monday, March 9, 2020 at 4:00 PM, though the last day to mail out ballots will be Friday, March 6, 2020. For your convenience, the Clerk's Office will be open on Saturday, March 7, 2020 from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM to issue absent voter ballots. 

Elections 

The Election branch of the Clerk’s Office is responsible for the administration of all federal, state, and local elections within Pittsfield Charter Township. Our duties include:
  • Registering voters
  • Maintaining accurate voter files
  • Verifying candidate petitions
  • Receiving applications for absent voter ballots and distributing absent voter ballots to residents
  • Administering all federal, state, and local elections

Voter Registration
We assist residents by registering voters and maintaining their personal voter registration files. With the passage of Proposal 3, residents may now register to vote by mail up to 15 days prior to the election in which they wish to vote, or they may come to the office to register in person beginning 14 days prior to the election up to 8:00 p.m. on Election Day. If registering in person within the 14 days leading up to the election, residents must provide proof of residency. 

Absentee Voting

Also with the passage of Proposal 3, voters no longer need a reason to request an Absent Voter Ballot. For more information, please contact the Clerk's Office. 

Federal Post Card Application
The Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) is a postage-free voter registration / Absent Voter Ballot Application produced and distributed by the federal government for use by military and overseas civilian voters. The FPCA may serve as both an Absent Voter Ballot Application and a new voter registration form under specific circumstances.

Military & Overseas Voter Empowerment Act
The Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) provides special registration and absentee voting provisions for military and overseas civilians, including the use of the Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot (FWAB).
