LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Friday Lansing City Clerk Chris Swope announced a new satellite office will open, the third location for Lansing voters.

The location at the Alfreda Schmidt Southside Community Center, 5825 Wise Road will open on Monday, Oct. 19 and allows voters to register to vote, pick up an absentee ballot, and/or return their completed absentee ballot.

“The addition of a third Clerk’s Office for this election will make early voting more accessible and safer for the Lansing’s electorate,” said Clerk Chris Swope. “Voters gain the convenience of selecting the location and the time they would like to complete their ballot, obtain a new ballot if they make a mistake, and register to vote.
