Absentee Ballot Envelopes Have a New Look

Absentee ballots for the March 10 presidential primary are arriving in mailboxes across Michigan and they have a new look.

A specially designed envelope with a blue and white look replaces the former larger-style manila envelopes. The return envelopes have a new green and white design. The colorful new envelopes were designed to make it easier for the United States Postal Service to process them.

A photo of the official ballot envelope is shown on the right to help you identify it.
