The 2020 Election Cycle has come to an end. Although not perfect or ordinary due to COVID restrictions, everything came out perfect in the end. I want to thank each and everyone of you for your patience and understanding during a very trying and difficult time. I was so very proud of my Election Workers who stepped up to the plate, put themselves on the front lines, and did a fantastic job. They are the best. My Deputy Clerk, Glenda, worked so very hard and did an excellent job working some pretty brutal days leading up to the election both in August and November. And, last but not least, THANK YOU for putting your faith in me to serve you for another 4 years. I will try my best for you and my Township.  

Please stay home, stay safe, and stay healthy. 


 Please remember to pick up any flowers or other memorials from the cemetery before October 1st of each year as our Sexton and his crew do a cemetery clean up in October before the cemetery closes. The cemetery reopens in April. 

 The Cemetery is not maintained through the winter months when we have snow unless there is a burial scheduled. Please do not try to drive on the cemetery roads in the deep snow and get stuck. Thank you for your consideration on this. Please be mindful of our Cemetery Ordinance when memorializing the grave sites at the cemetery. For a complete look at our Cemetery Ordinance, please click the following link: Rutland Charter Township Cemetery Ordinance.




The Township will now be using the Federally purchased laptops for the pollbooks in both of our precincts. These laptops were given to us using HAVA (Help Americans Vote Act) Funds. These laptops will streamline the voting process for everyone.

Don't forget these two web addresses for all your voting information. They are direct links to the State of Michigan web pages.
