Early Voting – Bessemer MI

In November 2022, Michigan voters approved a constitutional amendment that gives voters the right to vote early and in person before statewide and federal elections. Early voting takes place for a minimum of nine consecutive days, ending on the Sunday before an election.  Early voting sites must be open for at least eight hours each day during the early voting period.

At least one early voting site must be available to all voters in every city and township.  Local clerks may partner with other cities and townships, or their county, to run an early voting site together.  This decision is based on population density, site accessibility, and expected voter turnout.

For the 2024 election year, Watersmeet Township has partnered with Gogebic County and several other townships to share a single early voting site, located at the Gogebic County building in Bessemer.  Voters from more than one precinct, city, or township can vote at this single site.  The schedule for early voting at the Bessemer site is below.

Election Day in-person voting for Watersmeet voters will continue to be held on election day, at the Watersmeet Township Community Center.  Absentee voting will continue as it has in the past.
