A Message from the
Lawrence Township Clerk
Anyone can receive an absent ballot. You no longer have to give a reason. If you are not on the Permanent AV list and would like to receive an AV Ballot application for each election (now and in
the future), the request can be picked up at the new Town Hall or downloaded from the above link. Complete the request and drop off or mail to me at the address shown.
If you do not want to be on the permanent list but wish an AV ballot for the November 3, 2020 General Election, you can request one at the Township Office or call to have an application mailed
to you. You MUST complete the form, sign and return the application to receive an AV ballot.
If you requested a November ballot with your March Presidential Primary or the August Primary AV application, you do NOT need to re-request the November ballot. We will automatically send
it to you once they are available in late September.
After Proposal 3 was passed in 2018, a number of changes have occurred. One is that your AV ballot envelopes have significantly changed. They are now white/blue for the outgoing envelope and
white/green for the return envelope. If you get this in the mail, PLEASE do not discard...it is your ballot! Make sure to read ALL the instructions, as they have changed. You MUST sign and date
the outside of the redesigned return envelope. Drop off in the office lobby, outdoor secure drop box or mail back.
If you are a citizen and resident of Lawrence Township and are not registered to vote, you can do so at any Secretary of State office or online up to 15 days prior to an election. After that,
you must register in person at the Lawrence Township offices located at 411 N Paw Paw St, Lawrence.
In-person voting will take place on Tuesday, November 3, 2020 from 7am - 8pm. Voters are requested to wear a face mask and observe the 6' social distancing recommendations, unless you are
in a voting booth.
The pens/pencils, ballot secrecy folders, booths, etc. will be sanitized between each voter. The door handles, etc. will be sanitized regularly. Hand sanitizer will be available
throughout the voting precinct.
If you have ANY questions, don't hesitate to call the office at 269-674-4255 or my cell at 269-655-4458.
