New Ballot Drop Boxes and City Clerk Satellite Office

Additional ballot drop box at East Lansing City HallIn an effort to better serve East Lansing voters in the November 3, 2020 General Election, the East Lansing City Clerk's office has installed new ballot drop boxes in the community and is slated to open a new satellite office at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center (ELHCC) on Monday, Oct. 5.

In addition to the existing ballot drop box located in the north lot of East Lansing City Hall (410 Abbot Road), two new ballot drop boxes have been installed at the MSU-CATA Transportation Center, 592 N. Shaw Lane, and the East Lansing Department of Public Works, 1800 E. State Road. East Lansing voters can drop off their voted absentee ballots for the November 3, 2020 General Election at any of these locations (for East Lansing ballots only). These boxes are locked and are checked daily by staff with the East Lansing City Clerk's office.

Beginning Monday, Oct. 5, City of East Lansing residents can also register to vote, vote absentee and turn in their voted absentee ballots at the East Lansing City Clerk's new satellite location at ELHCC, 819 Abbot Road. The satellite City Clerk’s office will be open with the following hours through Tuesday, Nov. 3: 

  • Monday, Oct. 5 - Friday, Oct. 30: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. (Monday through Friday)
  • Saturday, Oct. 31 and Sunday, Nov. 1: 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
  • Monday, Nov. 2: 9 a.m.- 4 p.m.
  • Election Day - Tuesday, Nov. 3: 7 a.m. - 8 p.m.

In addition to the satellite location, the City Clerk’s main office, located inside East Lansing City Hall (410 Abbot Road), is still available to assist all residents who need to register to vote, vote absentee and turn in their ballots.
