Tuesday, Aug. 4 is the primary election in Michigan.
In-person voting will be available in every jurisdiction. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Voters using the absentee ballot method to vote have until 8 p.m. on Election Day to complete the ballot and return it to the clerk’s office.
Your ballot will not be counted unless your signature is on the outside of the return envelope and matches your signature on file.
In Huron Township, the main bout on the ballot is six Republican candidates for township trustee competing for four places in the Nov. 3 general election.
Incumbents Angie Cady, John Chont, Michael Glaab and David Patterson are being challenged by Walter Irodenko and Bernie Yoscovits.
Also on the ballot in Huron is the fire department millage request.
The millage hopes to raise $527,820 in revenue to improve fire services through a proposed 20-year tax increase of 96 cents per $1,000 of taxable property valuation.
Huron Township public safety officials say the additional revenue will be used to upgrade equipment, make building improvements, and purchase fire response vehicles such as fire trucks.
The Secretary of State’s Michigan voting information website has a lot of useful information for voters.
