Michigan residents passed a constitutional amendment in November 2022 allowing voters to cast their ballots up to nine days before Election Day. Michigan voters began casting ballots in person on Feb. 17 for the 2024 presidential primary.

During the early voting period, voters are issued a ballot and can then insert their ballot directly into a tabulator at their early voting site. Detroit residents can go to any of 14 specific locations to vote early, including Greater Grace Temple, the Northwest Activities Center, the Butzel Family Center, the Department of Elections on Grand Boulevard, or the City Clerk’s office downtown.

The early voting centers will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Feb. 25.  The Democratic and Republican presidential primaries take place one week from today, on Tuesday, Feb. 27.
