To make it easier for residents to exercise their right to vote, the City of Grand Rapids is adding drop boxes for absentee ballots across the city.
With the November 3rd election right around the corner, the city of Grand Rapids has drop boxes throughout the city. There are now seven locations, including outside of four Grand Rapids Public Library branches.
Joel Hondorp, Grand Rapids City Clerk, says for more than ten years, they’ve had a drop box for several election cycles at 300 Ottawa. But with the increase in absentee ballots he says they need to make a change.
