SCRAP TIRE GRANT

Tires on rims will not be accepted.
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 email@example.com.
Norway Township will strive to serve its constituents with dependable and efficient
service. The highest standards and lawfully executed service is our goal.
