Voting Location for ALL City of Hancock Precincts:

Lakeview Manor - 1401 W. Quincy St.

On Election Day, polls are open from 7:00 am until 8:00 pm.

Voting Absentee

You do not have to provide a reason to vote with an absent voter ballot. Registered voters can obtain an application by calling the clerk’s office at 906-482-2720. Click here to find applications, and track your absent voter ballot online.

The application must be sent to the City Clerk where you are registered for processing.

Permanent Absentee Application List

Voters registered in the City of Hancock can add their names to the permanent ballot list by completing an Absentee Voter Ballot Application and selecting the option to "Automatically send me an absent voter ballot for each future election for which I'm eligible." Or apply on-line at https://mvic.sos.state.mi.us/  or simply send an email to city@cityofhancock.net  and include your name and address.

If a voter chooses to be placed on the Permanent Ballot List, the voter is responsible to let the clerk know at least 45 days prior to the election if they need the ballot sent to a different address as the Post Office will NOT forward ballots.

Election Inspector Application

Registered voters in Michigan interested in serving as Election Inspectors can fill out an application and submit it to the City Clerk. Inspectors will be trained by the County Clerk prior to every even-year election cycle. Applications are available from the City Clerk or on the State Voter Information Center website.
