Michigan Voter Information Center (MVIC)

At the Michigan Voter Information Center MVIC website you can determine if you are registered to vote, track your absentee ballot and so much more. It is a powerful source of voter information.

Completing Your August Primary Ballot:

  1. The August ballot contains a column for each major party.  You must vote for only one party.  If you vote for both parties, the partisan portion of the ballot will not be counted.    
  2. Over-voting in a race means your votes in that race are NOT counted and will be disregarded.
    1. An overvote occurs when you vote for more candidates than open seats.  For instance, one seat is open and you vote for two candidates.  Or, for instance, in the Bloomfield Township Trustee race there are 4 open seats and you vote for more than 4 candidates.
    2. For any race that you overvote, the selections in that race are not counted.  Any other votes properly completed in other races are counted.
  3. Under-voting in a race means that the votes you made will be counted but you made less choices than permitted.
    1. An undervote occurs when you vote for less candidates than allowed.  For instance, in the race for the 4 Bloomfield Township Trustee seats, you vote for only 3.  Your 3 votes will be counted but the 4th vote option is forfeited.    
  4. If you vote in person, the tabulator will alert you to the impermissible voting – whether crossing parties, over-voting or under-voting.  It will ask if you want to continue to cast the ballot as is.  If you respond “no,” the ballot will be returned from the tabulator so you can take it to the election inspectors to spoil and obtain a new ballot.
  5. Remember to check both sides of the ballot.
  6. Write-in voting requires you to fill in the rectangle next to the blank and write-in the candidate’s name.  Only votes for a valid write-in candidate (one who timely filed the proper document) are counted.
