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. 

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).
