Voters will go to the polls across Michigan on Tuesday.

School millages and bond issues dominate the May ballot.

A few examples of what’s on the ballot:

At more than $96 million, the largest bond Kalamazoo Public Schools officials have ever put before voters is on the ballot.  If approved, the bulk of the money will be used to replace or repair roofs, boilers, parking lots, lighting, windows, and buses.

In Ann Arbor, voters are being asked to make changes to the current millage rate.  Commercial and rental property owners would see a slight increase in their taxes, but the changes would not affect most homeowners. 

In all, the polls will be open in 66 of Michigan’s 83 counties.
