In Lansing election workers are currently preparing absentee ballot requests for the first “no-reason” absentee election since the passage of Proposal 3 in November.
More than 4,000 absentee ballots are getting ready to be mailed out on Friday for the Lansing School District millage election.
A crew of election workers will spend two days preparing the initial batch of absentee ballots, an option many believe will ease the process for people to cast votes.
“No-reason absentee, opening earlier, longer hours on that last weekend is really going to reduce some obstacles for people and hopefully increase participation on these important issues that impact our community,” explained Brian Jackson, chief deputy City Clerk.
The Lansing School millage election will be held on May 7.
