Democracies only function when citizens are engaged and involved. Your vote is your voice in our government and no matter who you support in this election (or any election) I hope you vote.
2021 Election Days In Livonia
There are 4 open seats for the Livonia City Council in November. The top vote getter will be City Council President. The next two highest vote getters will have 4 year terms and the person who comes in fourth place will serve 2 years.
This is a non-partisan race and you can vote for up to 4 candidates. This means you can select one name on the ballot, two, three or four.
Who you vote for matters. I want to make sure it's easy for you to have information about all the candidates running for office so you can chose the person or people who are right for you.
All registered voters are eligible to vote absentee. The Application for Absent Voter's Ballots are sent out in August. Absentee Ballots are sent out in September (that means you can vote as early as September). The deadline for applying for an absentee Ballot is 2pm on the Saturday preceding the election (October 30th). Click here to learn how to register to vote absentee.
If you plan to vote on Election Day, here's a map of precincts and polling places.
