Flat Rock along with the rest of the country will be voting on November 8, 2022.
Below is an example of the ballot for our area. The ballot is for one of the districts in Flat Rock and may not reflect all districts.
Americans first began the custom of weekday voting in 1845, when Congress passed a federal law designating the first Tuesday following the first Monday in November as Election Day.
Before then, states were allowed to hold elections any time they pleased within a 34-day period before the first Wednesday in December, but this system had a few crucial flaws. Knowing the early voting results could affect turnout and sway opinion in states that held late elections, and those same last-minute voters could potentially decide the outcome of the entire election. Faced with these issues, Congress created the current Election Day in the hope of streamlining the voting process.
Just a note, absentee ballots are available from the clerk’s office at Flat Rock City Hall. Click here for the City of Flat Rock Clerk’s Office information.
