About Norway Township
Norway Township is located in the south central portion of Dickinson County and consists of approximately 89 square miles. According to the 2010 census there are 1,489 people living in the township with the majority living in the southern portion which consists of rolling hills and farmland. The village of Vulcan is also located in the southern portion of the township. The northern two-thirds of the township is made up of rugged terrain including cliffs, swamps and many small lakes and streams. State owned land in the township includes over 29,000 acres of the Copper Country State Forest.
ABSENTEE VOTING IN NORWAY TOWNSHIP
Michigan Election Laws have changed to provide the opportunity for all registered voters to vote via absentee ballot. Norway Township maintains a permanent absentee voter list for all elections. Voters on the permanent list are automatically sent an application to obtain an absentee ballot for every election. This eliminates having to remember to call for an absentee ballot. Also, by voting absentee, you will no longer have to come to the township hall and wait in line to vote. This is especially convenient for people who work long hours or who have children in sports or other after school activities. It also helps alleviate the crowd at the hall on election day. If you would like more information or would like your name included on the permanent absentee voter list please contact Joyce Giuliani at 715-927-0423 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
