Can you automatically mail me a ballot for each election?

As of 2023, there are two 'permanent' lists Michigan voters may sign-up for.  The Permanent Application List allows voters to receive an application which, when returned to their local clerk, enables them to receive an absentee ballot for the upcoming election.  If a voter has signed-up for the Permanent Application List, their application must be returned before a ballot will be sent out.  Recent changes to Michigan Election Law introduced the Permanent Absentee Ballot List, which voters may sign-up for if they intend to vote via absentee ballot for every election.  Voters who sign-up for this list must complete a one time application which applies to all future elections.  

Status on either list follows a voter if they move or change jurisdictions.  Voters may request they be removed from either list.
