City Hall open for voters to cast May election ballots

FLINT, Michigan — Flint City Hall is open for in-person absentee voting for the May 4, 2021, election from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.

Residents may register to vote, receive an absentee ballot and vote in person all in a single visit. Absentee voting is open to all residents. Additional hours, including weekend availability, will be added leading up to the May 4 election.

All visitors will be limited to the City Clerk’s office. All other offices remain closed to the public because of COVID-19, but all offices continue to be operational and serve residents by telephone. A walkup window also is available to serve residents from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays (except holidays).

“Being able to vote is a fundamental right for all residents,” Mayor Sheldon Neeley said. “We are doing everything possible to make voting easily accessible.”

Michigan residents may request an absentee ballot online or receive one from their local clerk’s office. Absentee ballots may be mailed in, submitted in-person at the City Clerk’s office, or returned using the drop box in front of City Hall. For more information, contact the Flint City Clerk’s office Elections Division at (810) 766-7414.

All residents are asked to wear a mask when coming to vote to protect against the spread of COVID-19. Wearing a mask helps to protect them and employees. However, Michigan election law bans any requirement for voters to wear a mask when accessing the polls.
