You Voted for Warren. Now what?
There's still time - barely - to "spoil" your absentee ballot.
From the March, 2020 issue
Super Tuesday turned the Democratic presidential primary into a two-person race between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. Where does that leave the many Ann Arborites who'd already cast absentee ballots?
As of mid-afternoon on Friday, March 6, 424 city voters had claimed a second chance and "spoiled" their absentee ballots. The deadline for written requests has passed, but you can still "spoil" an absentee ballot in person until 4 p.m. Monday, March 9, at the City Clerk's office on the second floor of City Hall. You'll then have the option to either vote in person on Tuesday or take a new absentee ballot and return it to the clerk's office before the polls close at 8 p.m.
The clerk's office will not be issuing dog licenses or block party permits on Election Day--it's the polling place for Ward 1, Precinct 4. To find your own polling station, go to CityClerk@a2gov.org.
Even if some disappointed Warren or Buttigieg supporter decide to sit out the Michigan primary, County Clerk Larry Kestenbaum predicts a large turnout. "As of some time Friday, there were more than 35,000 absentee ballots issued in Washtenaw County," he emails. "By comparison there were about 16,000 absentee ballots cast in the 2016 presidential primary."
