Early In-Person Voting

What is early voting?
In November 2022, Michigan voters approved a Constitutional Amendment that gives voters the right to early in-person voting. 

Early voting allows a voter to cast a ballot before Election Day in an experience similar to voting in a precinct on Election Day. During an early voting period, voters are issued a ballot and can then vote and insert their ballot directly into a tabulator at their Early Voting Center (EVC).

Where and when can Troy voters early vote?
Troy's Early Voting Center is at the Troy Community Center (3179 Livernois Rd), in Rooms 304 and 305 (Banquet Rooms.)
Early voting lasts for 9 days prior to Election Day, for 8 hours per day.

For the November 7, 2023 General Election, the early voting dates and times are October 28-November 5, 2023 from 8:30am-4:30pm, except on Thursday, November 2 when the hours are 12:00-8:00pm.

How is early voting different from absentee voting?
Both early in-person voting and absentee voting allow voters to vote their ballot prior to Election Day. However, there are important differences between the two choices in voting.

Absentee Voting Early In-person Voting
How you cast your ballot - Absentee Voting allows you to vote your absentee ballot at home or at the City Clerk’s Office. You then submit your ballot in the signed envelope by mail, in person, or by drop box. After your absentee ballot is received by the City Clerk's Office, your absentee ballot is processed and tabulated by the Absent Voter Counting Board.  How you cast your ballot - Early in-person voting is similar to how you would at your precinct on Election Day. Voters are issued a ballot, vote it at the Early Voting Center, and then insert it into the tabulator, just like at a precinct.
