Key Information

HB 4697 implements the state funded dropbox requirement passed under Proposal 2 of 2022, requiring all cities and townships to have at least one dropbox and larger cities to have one dropbox per 15,000 registered voters. Dropboxes are a secure, efficient, and convenient way for voters to return absentee ballots and applications, and this bill helps to establish equitable access to dropboxes for all Michigan voters. 

HB 4699 establishes the permanent mail voter list which registered voters can sign up for in person, via mail, or online with the Secretary of State. This will allow voters to receive their absentee ballot automatically during each election cycle. Allowing voters to choose to be mailed an absentee ballot for each election is not only more convenient for voters, but may also increase voter participation by removing steps in the annual process and provides a tangible, actionable reminder for each election.
