Fenton Twp. — Election workers are collecting absentee ballots and preparing for the Nov. 3 General Election. In Fenton Township, as of Wednesday, Oct. 7, 5,615 absentee ballots had been requested and 1,868 had been returned.

The township has approximately 14,000 registered voters.

“Traditionally, about a third of the votes cast have been absentee prior to 2020. In August, it was kind of a flip flop. Two-thirds were absentee and a third in person and we’ll probably see something similar in this election,” said Thomas Broecker, operations manager/deputy clerk. “Certainly, they’re unprecedented numbers for absentee.”
