I want to put to rest lies and misinformation that I have seen spread on social media in the past two days. Claims are being made that if your polling location used Sharpies or other marker type writing utensils that your votes didn’t count. Let me reassure you that is the furthest thing from the truth. In Menominee County, we have been using Sharpies and Paper Mate Flair felt tip pens to mark your ballots since 2018. These are the marking devices qualified to use with the vote tabulators used throughout the county. These tabulators are tested by your local township/city clerk at least twice prior to every election to make sure they are working properly and tabulating the votes properly. I am attaching a memo from our vendor showing this has been the practice since the tabulators were first used in this state in 2017. If you need further proof, let me give you some additional facts and logic to support this.

In the November 3, 2020 General Election we had 12,678 registered voters cast their ballot in Menominee County. This was a mixture of absentee ballots and in person voting. So if you use the logic of those people who are spreading these lies then only the ballots that were sent in, or where voters brought in their own pen would have had the votes counted. If their claims are true then in the 20 precincts that are using the Paper Mate Flair pens or Sharpie Fine Point pens wouldn’t have counted votes. Let’s take a specific race to prove my point. According to our unofficial results, in the race for President of the United States, 12,622 votes were counted between all six candidates and the write-in position on the ballot. As you can see there were only 56 votes that were not registered for any of these candidates. Not every voter votes for every race on the ballot. That could simply have been 56 voters that decided that they only wanted to vote for a different race or proposal on the ballot and didn’t want to vote for President.

I hope this helps people better understand that in fact your votes DID COUNT. Please feel free to contact me in my office if you have any additional questions. I encourage you to seek your election procedure information from a verifiable source with experience conducting elections and a working knowledge of ballot standards, tabulation programming, and operation. I am available to take those questions.

I just wanted to share some information with voters as they are receiving their absent voter ballots. Remember when filling out your ballots you can do the following:

“Straight Ticket” Voting: Voters may vote in the straight party race and select the party of their choosing - this will award votes up to the maximum allowed (and maximum candidates available) for each partisan race for the voter’s chosen party. The candidates receive “indirect votes” based on the voter’s single straight-party ballot selection. For example: Casting a vote for the Ice Cream Party in the straight party race will indirectly cast a vote for all candidates running under that party to the maximum allowed for each race in which the party is participating. If there are any races in which the Ice Cream Party is not participating, no votes will be cast in that race. If the voter wishes to vote in any non-partisan races and proposals, the voter must make selections in these races separately.

“Split Ticket” Voting: Voters may vote in the straight party race and select the party of their choosing, but then vote directly in an individual race (or multiple individual races) by directly voting for a candidate from a different party, voting for a candidate with no party affiliation, or casting a write-in vote. As with straight ticket voting, voting in the straight party race will indirectly cast a vote for all candidates running under that party to the maximum allowed for each race in which the party is participating, except where the voter overrides an indirect vote by a casting direct vote for a candidate of a different party, a candidate with no party affiliation, or a write-in vote. For example: If a voter casts a straight party vote for the Ice Cream Party but directly casts a vote for one individual candidate of the Pie Party, the straight party vote will indirectly cast a vote for all candidates running under the Ice Cream Party to the maximum allowed for each race in which the Ice Cream Party is participating, except for the one race in which the voter cast a vote for the Pie Party candidate. If there are any races in which the Ice Cream Party is not participating, no votes will be cast in that race if no direct vote for another candidate is made. If the voter wishes to vote in any non-partisan races and proposals, the voter must make selections in these races separately.

“Mixed Ticket” Voting: Voters may decline to vote in the straight party race and directly select candidates of their choice from any party (or no party affiliation and write-ins) up to the maximum allowed for each race.

Other Notes: If a voter selects the “straight party” race but then votes for individual candidates of the same party, the vote for those individual candidates will still count, and will only count once. If a voter wishes to vote for a write-in candidate (whether or not they select the straight party option), the voter must fill out the oval for write-in candidate and write the name or it will be an invalid write-in and will not be counted.

Menominee County Sheriff's Office

SCAM ALERT!!!!!

There is a phone scam in Menominee County where people are calling and posing as a deputy with the Menominee County Sheriff’s Office. The person is threatening to send officers to your house to arrest you for warrants unless you wire money via gift cards instead of coming to the Jail due to COVID-19. The person on the phone is using real deputies names. DO NOT send any money or go buy gift cards and give the person the numbers over the phone. The Menominee County Sheriff’s Office DOES NOT conduct this kind of business. If you receive one of these phone calls, please hang up, and contact the Sheriff’s Office. Thank you.

It has come to my attention that some households have been receiving Absent Voter Applications from the Michigan Secretary of State for voters that no longer live at that address. If you receive any of these AV applications for voters that do not live at your address, please contact my office at 906-863-9968 or email me at [email protected]

I have received many calls and emails from registered voters that have not yet received their Absent Voter Ballot Applications. I have been assured by the State of Michigan Bureau of Elections that these applications have been sent out. If you do not want to wait for that application to arrive in the mail you can download an application and send it to your Township or City Clerk. This is the link to the application.

At the March 17, 2020 Special Menominee County Board Meeting the County Board of Commissioners voted to limit public access to all County Facilities until April 5, 2020. This is in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Departments will try to accomplish as much work as possible using remote means (i.e. telephone & email), but could still see the public by appointment for essential services (i.e. court hearings, personal protection orders, etc.). Please call the Menominee County Courthouse at 906-863-7779 if you have questions regarding which services can be provided remotely and which services require an appointment.
