Election Day November 3rd

There are some elections on November 3rd this year. The big one is the State Senate, district 19. It's a swing district that covers all of Calhoun County and part of Jackson County. Mark Schauer held that district before going off to screw us in Congress.

The two candidates are Mike Nofs, who was a republican in the most democrat part of the district (Battle Creek and Albion) and Marty Griffin, the former mayor of Jackson who was then a state rep in a swing state rep district. This one can go either way.

Detroit has a mayor election that day.

In Livingston County, we have several elections as well. I'll have more on these closer to election day.
Brighton and Pinckney Schools have elections. So do South Lyon and Webberville, which have portions of their districts in Livingston County.
Howell and Brighton Cities have elections. I saw a couple of signs in Brighton.
Those in a Washtenaw ISD have elections as well. (Whitmore Lake, maybe Dexter) There is a 2 mill tax increase on the ballot.

The big election here though is in Hamburg Township. Matt Skiba's recall election will be on the ballot. That will be a strict yes or no vote with no other opponents. The moment of truth will be decided then.

For those who want to know what's on this November ballot, go to the link from the Secretary of State's site. It will show which communities have an election.
