Announcements

2.I.

Dual absent voter ballot applications

Dual absent voter ballot applications for the August 4th and November 3rd elections have mailed to voters on the Permanent Absentee Voter’s List.  At the top of the application, there are three selection boxes, which are:  1.  Both Elections Dates, 2.  Aug.4, 2020 and 3.  Nov. 3, 2020.  You must select one box and sign the form before a ballot will be mailed to you.  If you miss these steps, there may be a delay in you receiving your ballot because the Clerk’s Office will have to send another application for you to complete correctly and return it.  You can return your application via U.S. Mail, or the Election Drop Box located in the rear parking lot between the Police Department and the 2nd floor entrance to Town Hall.  If you have any concerns, please contact the Clerk’s Office on 248-674-6266 or email elections@waterfordmi.gov

2020 Census

Have you responded to the 2020 Census yet? By this time, all Waterford residents should have received multiple communications from the U.S. Census Bureau inviting you to complete the Census questionnaire online, by phone, or mail.  If you haven’t responded yet, please visit the official Census website at www.2020census.gov or call 800-923-8282 to respond by phone. There are only 9 questions and responding takes less than 10 minutes for most.

Your action today helps shape Waterford’s future for the next 10 years.  Visit Waterford Township’s Census information page at www.waterfordmi.gov/census for details, resources, videos and more!  And remember our Waterford 2020 Census Slogan – I count, You count, We count, Everyone counts.
