Absentee ballot requests mailed to Romulus voters

Romulus City Clerk Ellen Craig-Bragg reminded members of the city council and the public that requests for absentee ballots for the Aug. 4 ballot have been mailed.
Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson mailed requests to all registered voters and Criag-Bragg's office also mailed the request forms to all those in the city who have registered on the permanent absentee ballot request list.
“If you didn't receive your request, please call us or if you have questions, contact us at,” she said.

She said members of the clerk's staff were on hand to help answer questions at (734) 942-7540 if residents want to check to see if they are on the permanent absentee ballot request list or if they want to register as an absentee voter.
Craig-Bragg also reminded residents that the drop box in front of city hall is open for deposit of the requests for any residents who may not be comfortable placing their ballot or request for a ballot in the mail.
“The ballot box is right in front of city hall, it is a stainless steel box,” she reminded the council members and the audience.
In response to a question during the recent meeting from Councilman William Wadsworth, Craig-Bragg said that she expected to have a sample ballot by this week which would provide more information as to the questions facing voters in the August election.
