Ishpeming Absentee Ballots

Ishpeming City Clerk Jennifer Rajala would like to make it clear that two military voters overseas were not ignored in their request for an absentee ballot from the city.

The deadline for sending out the absentee ballots was Saturday, June 23rd.

The Ishpeming clerk sent out the ballots on Monday, June 25th.

The State of Michigan has now asked the City of Ishpeming to follow up on the missed deadline.

Rajala has personally contacted each voter.

One of them has not filled out the absentee ballot yet.

The other one recently put the completed ballot back into the mail.

Rajala now has to report the status of both absentee ballots to the state by Wednesday.
