McCoy Creek in Buchanan

Township Clerk

Wendi Heyliger, Buchanan Township Clerk


Part of my goal as Clerk is to be able to streamline processes and to implement improvements so that my office can operate more efficiently to better serve you, the residents. 

As a part of the duties of being the Clerk, I am also the chief election officer for Buchanan Township. If you have questions regarding voter registration, absentee voting, election processes, or are interested in serving as an election inspector please contact my office. I am happy to assist you.


If you choose to vote by absentee ballot, please make sure to vote your ballot and return it as early as possible. We must receive your ballot in the clerk’s office no later than 8:00 pm on election day in order for your ballot to count! 

We do have a dropbox for your convenience should you decide that you do not want to return your ballot by mail. The dropbox is located inside the first set of double doors at the entrance of the new township facility. Please deposit your election related material in the dropbox marked “Clerk- Elections”. This dropbox is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

For more information please contact the Township Clerk by phone at (269) 695-6442, or by stopping by the Clerk’s Office Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 pm.
