Proposals to appear on Aug. 7 ballot across Lapeer County

LAPEER COUNTY — The 2018 election season begins Tuesday, Aug. 7 in Lapeer County and across Michigan with a Primary Election.

In Lapeer County, depending on where you live, voters may be asked to decide ballot proposals in their jurisdiction. On a countywide basis, all voters will find a renewal request for senior citizen services.

Today’s INSIGHT offers a first look at ballot proposals across the county ranging from a request for funding to support a new main library for the Lapeer District Library to first-time money to fund emergency medical first responders in Deerfield Township.

If you’re not registered to vote, you still have a little time but don’t hesitate. You must be registered to vote at least 30 days prior to any election to be able to vote in that election. To vote in the Tuesday, Aug. 7 Primary Election you will need to register on or before Monday, July 9.

To register to vote, you must be all of the following:

• A U.S. citizen

• At least 18 years old by Election Day

• A resident of Michigan

• A resident of the city or township where you are applying to register to vote.

You may register to vote at the Michigan Secretary of State’s Office at 301 W. Genesee in Lapeer or at your local village, city or township clerk’s office.
