More than half of 10,120 East Lansing absentee ballots have been returned

Even three weeks before the election, East Lansing City Clerk Jennifer Shuster said she was working nonstop for this life-changing election.

“We have issued 10,120 absentee ballots and 51% of those have been returned as voted. This is a record-breaking amount for the City of East Lansing,” Shuster said.

With the coronavirus spiking, some voters just don’t feel safe hitting the polls in-person.
