Automatic Application List

The East Lansing City Clerk's Office maintains an Automatic Application List for registered East Lansing voters who would like to automatically receive an absentee voter (AV) ballot application before each election scheduled in East Lansing.

Additionally, with the passage of the statewide ballot proposal 18-3 in November 2018, all eligible and registered voters in Michigan may now request an AV ballot without providing a reason.

Registered East Lansing voters who would like to be placed on the East Lansing City Clerk's Automatic Application List can submit the Automatic Application Online Form or contact the East Lansing City Clerk by calling (517) 319-6914 or sending an email to

Attention: Military and overseas voters should visit to fill out a Federal Post Card Application (FPCA.) The application may be mailed or emailed directly to the City Clerk's Office, and is valid for all elections during a calendar year. A new application must be filled out and submitted annually, if the voter is still serving in the military or is living or visiting outside of the country.
