There will be three elections in 2024–Presidential Primary on Tues., Feb. 27; Primary on Tues., Aug. 6 (this covers all other federal, state, and local partisan offices); and General on Tues., Nov. 5.
In addition to voting at the polls on Election Day and absentee voting, Early Voting will now be offered for all federal and state elections. Early Voting for Bellevue Twp. will be held in cooperation with most other Eaton Co. jurisdictions at the Carmel Twp. Hall for nine days prior to each election. Specific dates and times will be posted before each election.
If you wish to receive an absentee ballot for all future elections, please contact the clerk for an application to be added to the new permanent mail ballot list. Rather than receiving an application for one or more of the elections every calendar year (as with the old permanent absentee voter list), you will apply once to receive a ballot for each election until you choose to be removed from the list. If you move, you will remain on the list and receive your ballot from your new jurisdiction at your new mailing address. If you move out of state, become ineligible to vote, move and fail to update your address, or fail to vote in six consecutive elections, you will be removed from the list.
