Secretary of State Ruth Johnson is reminding residents to cast ballots in local elections Tuesday, Aug 6.
“Cities, townships and school districts throughout the state are asking for your input,” said Johnson, Michigan’s chief elections officer. “If your community is holding an election Tuesday, please take a few minutes to vote and let your voice be heard.”
Elections will be held in 56 of Michigan’s 83 counties. Polls are open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
To find out if there is an election in their community, voters can visit the Secretary of State website at http://www.Michigan.gov/sos or check with their county clerk’s office. In addition, the online Michigan Voter Information Center at http://www.Michigan.gov/vote is an invaluable resource for voters. On the website, voters can make sure they are registered to vote, find their polling location and view a sample ballot. The website is also smartphone-friendly.
