Michigan voters will be casting ballots on Tuesday

May 5, 2013

Michigan voters go to the polls on Tuesday.

School bond issues dominate the ballot in most of Michigan.

For example, Kalamazoo voters are being asked to decide on a $62 million bond request. If voters give their OK, the district would spend most of the money on maintaining city school buildings.

There are a few elected offices on the ballot of note.

In Genesee County, voters are picking a new state senator. Former senator John Gleason stepped down after winning the Genesee County clerk’s election last fall.

In Troy, voters are picking a replacement for former mayor Janice Daniels. Daniels was recalled last November, after a sometimes controversial year in office. The winner of Tuesday’s six way race will serve out the remaining two and a half years left in Daniel’s term.

In Dexter, voters are being asked if they wish their community to stay a village or to become Michigan’s newest city.
