Livingston County Democrats have a special message for the Nov. 6 election – This Fall, Vote ‘Em All!
That’s because Republicans have stripped away your right to vote a straight ticket. To vote straight Democratic, you must fill in the box by each name, one by one. This may require more time at the polls and longer lines. To avoid that, consider voting absentee by contacting your local clerk and requesting an absentee ballot.
The 2018 Democratic slate is:
U.S. Senate – Debbie Stabenow
8th District Congress – Elissa Slotkin
Governor/Lt. Gov. – Gretchen Whitmer, Garlin Gilchrist II
Attorney General – Dana Nessel
Secretary of State – Jocelyn Benson
State Board of Education – Judy Pritchett, Tiffany Tilley
University of Michigan Regents – Jordan Acker, Paul Brown
Michigan State Board of Trustees – Brianna Scott, Kelly Tebay
Wayne State University Board of Trustees – Bryan Barnhill, Dr. Anil Kumar
22nd State Senate – Adam Dreher
42nd State House – Mona Shand
47th State House – Colleen Turk
County Commission 2 – Jennifer Garcia, Hartland Township
County Commission 3 – Steve Savela, Hartland Township
County Commission 4 – Maureen Martin, Unadilla Township
County Commission 5 – Alex Hansen, Howell Township
County Commission 6 – Kasey Helton, Marion Township
County Commission 8 – Kristina Drake, Hamburg Township
Cohoctah Township Trustee – Andrew Nowicki
Howell Township Trustee – Judith Minton
Putnam Township Trustee – Jim Robert
Remember to flip the ballot and vote for Michigan Supreme Court Justices in the Non-Partisan Section of the Ballot: Sam Bagenstos and Megan Kathleen Cavanaugh.
Livingston County Democrats also are urging a “Yes” vote on Proposal 1, legalizing the adult use and possession of small amounts of marijuana; Proposal 2, creating a non-partisan panel to redraw congressional and legislative district lines, and Proposal 3, expanding access to voting including making it easier to register and allowing no-reason absentee voting.
