Job Description

Halloween and trick-or-treating is a nationally recognized day for children to dress up in costumes and go door to door to receive a treat and it is not sanctioned by the Township. The Township only announces the suggested trick-or-treating hours (5:30 – 7:30 pm) so that it keeps a sense of order with the increased amount of pedestrian traffic for that evening and the Township has no further involvement. 

The Township has no legal authority or basis to cancel Halloween and trick-or-treating or to restrict the free movement of its residents. Participation in trick-or-treating is an individual parent decision, both by those who choose to allow their children to go door to door and those who choose to hand out candy.

All residents who participate, however, should adhere to any public health recommendations from the Saginaw County Health Department. Be safe and utilize common sense, such as, wear a mask and maintain social distancing if not in the same household.


Please be smart and be safe!

How do I receive an Absent Voter Ballot Application?

Applications are available online at,4670,7-127-1633_8716_8728-21037–,00.html


I received an Absent Voter Ballot Application in the mail and I already filled one out in March. Do I need to fill this one out?

Yes. The application that went out in March did not include the August election. Please mark the appropriate box(es) that you would like to receive ballots and return to the Clerk via mail or the drop box at the Township Office.


I signed up to always receive absentee ballots so why am I receiving this application?

Voters have the option to be placed on a permanent absentee voter list. This does not mean that they are exempt from completing an absentee ballot application. By being placed on the permanent absentee ballot application list it allows the Township to automatically mail you an application for elections in that current year. The application must be completed and returned to the Clerk in order for the Clerk to verify the signatures and distribute the requested ballots.


Can I return my Absent Voter Ballot Application in the drop box at the Township Office?

Yes the applications can be returned via mail or by utilizing the drop box. 


I will be away at school and would like my ballot mailed there. How do I do that?

There is a section near the middle where you can put the start date and end date that you will be at a different location and enter the address you would like the ballot mailed.


How do I know if I am registered to vote and how do I track my absentee ballot application?

Go to to look up everything from what is on the ballot to whether you are registered to vote and where.
