GENESEE COUNTY, Mich. (WEYI) – County clerks across the state are working overtime to process absentee voter applications before the November 3rd election.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW CAN BE SEEN IN THE VIDEO BELOW:

So far, more than 2.7 million Michigan voters have requested absentee ballots.

"There's five of us and we've been working nights, weekends, Saturday and Sunday," said Grand Blanc Township Clerk Kathy Lane.

Lane has been in public service for 30 years. She says she hasn't seen anything like this.

Grand Blanc Township had about 3,800 permeant absentee voters, according to Lane.

As absentee ballot applications come in, a clerk scans them, comparing the signature on the application, the signature on your voter registration. Ballots are then stuffed.

From there, they make it to your mailbox for you to fill out.

Put the ballot inside of the secrecy envelope and put that inside the mailing envelope. If you're mailing it don't forget postage.

If you are using a ballot dropbox, make sure you return your ballot to the dropbox you're registered to vote in, otherwise it won’t count.
