It’s Not Too Late To Change Absentee Ballots

If you suffer from early voter’s remorse, you may be able to cast another ballot. While the process is little known and rarely used, some states do allow voters to change their early or absentee ballots with no questions asked — Michigan is among them. The big question is how does it work? Ed Sidlow, a political science professor at Eastern Michigan University, explains.

“I suspect it falls into the hands of one of the election clerks at the township or at the precinct level to try and retrieve the ballot and  have you change it,” Sidlow said.

Sidlow says if someone changes their vote their original absentee ballot is then marked “spoiled” and set aside. But adds it’s a very rare and unlikely scenario. If you cast an early vote you have until 5 o’clock this evening to change your mind
