Accessible Voting

 

Voters with disabilities can vote privately and independently using the Touch Writer, Voter Assist Terminal. The Touch Writer is a ballot-marking device that voters can use to assist with marking a traditional paper ballot. Voters can use the machine to mark their ballot through the use of large font touch screen, Braille keypad and audio headset, or with the aid of their own personal sip/puff device or foot pedal that can be plugged into a port on the front of the terminal. The Touch Writer touch screen features magnification and contrast features and the audio ballot can be adjusted for speed and volume. The Touch Writer is available for all voters to use in every city polling place. 

 

 

Voting Requirements

Every Michigan voter who offers to vote in the polls must comply with the requirement by showing picture identification or signing an affidavit attesting that he or she is not in possession of picture identification. (See MCL 168.523 for voter identification requirement.)

 

Voters can satisfy the ID requirement by showing a Michigan driver’s license or a Michigan personal identification card. Voters who do not possess either document may show any of the following forms of picture ID as long as it is current:

 

  • Driver’s license or personal ID card issued by another state.
  • Federal or state government-issued photo ID.
  • U.S. passport.
  • Military identification card with photo.
  • Student identification with photo from a high school or an accredited institution of higher education.
  • Tribal identification card with photo.

 

IMPORTANT - Voters without ID will not be turned away on Election Day. Michigan Election law anticipates that not all voters will have picture ID. Voters who do not have acceptable picture ID or who forgot to bring acceptable picture ID to the polls can vote like any other voter by signing an affidavit. ​

 

 

 

 Returning your Absent Voter Ballot

 The City Clerk's Office recommends that voters return ballots in advance of Election Day, and no later than Election Night at 8 p.m. Voters can return ballots in person at City Hall or via mail or other courier.

 

The City Clerk's Office has ballot drop boxes inside and outside of City Hall and one behind Comerica Bank in downtown Saline. These ballot boxes are accessible 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. 

  

Ballot Marking Instructions

 

Completely fill the box opposite your choice as shown, using a blue or black ink pen. 

 


Partisan Section 

Straight Ticket: Vote the party of your choice. This allows you to vote for all of the candidates of one party with a single vote.

Split Ticket: You may vote a straight ticket AND vote for individual candidates of your choice in specific races. The individual votes for candidates will be counted when different than the straight party vote.

Mixed Ticket: Vote for the individual candidates of your choice in each office without selecting a party choice.

Non-Partisan and Proposal Sections of the ballot need to be voted separately.

Do NOT vote for more candidates that indicated under each office.

Write-In candidates: To vote for a candidate whose name is not on the ballot, write the name of the candidate in the blank space provided and darken the oval next to the write-in name. Do NOT cast a write-in vote for a candidate already on the ballot for that office.

Be sure to check both sides of the ballot!

If you make a mistake, you may request a replacement ballot!
