Fruitland Township, MI

Clerk / Elections


  • Some voters may have received a new Voter ID Card. A small amount of voters were changed from Precinct 1 to Precinct 2 to better reflect the County Commissioner division line that runs down Duck Lake Road in Fruitland Township. 
  • Absent Voter Applications for the November 7, 2023 election will be sent via US Mail by September 13, 2023 for any voters on the permanent absentee application list.
  • If you are not on the current Permanent Absent Voter Application list, you will need to contact the Clerk’s office to request an application or visit   to request one online.
  • Absentee Ballot Applications will include a box that, if checked, will add the voter to the Permanent BALLOT mailing list. This means you will receive a BALLOT for every election without having to apply. This is different than the current permanent absent voter application list.
  • There will be sample ballots available at the Township Hall and will be located here when available.
