The number of absentee voter requests statewide is now 2.28 million for the November election.
“A week ago we were at 2.1 million, which was already more than ever before in Michigan history,” says Secretary of State spokesman Jake Rollow.
Rollow says they will begin mailing absentee ballots soon.
“On the 19th, this Saturday, absentee ballots will go out to military and overseas voters. Those go out 45 days before the election.”
They will begin going out to everyone in Michigan who’s requested one on September 24th.
