The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging the informed and active participation of citizens in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.

Statewide Primary Election - Aug. 2nd


Check if you are Registered to Vote 

If you need to register to vote, your option after July 18th is in person at your clerk's office before 8pm on Election Day. 

Review your ballot at VOTE411

Because Michigan is an open primary state, membership in a specific party is not required to vote in a primary.


Registered voters will be given a ballot with Republican and Democratic candidates and nonpartisan candidates and proposal. Once in the privacy of the polling booth, the voter will select the party of their choice and vote ONLY for that party's candidates.


Crossing between different party candidates will invalidate their votes for the partisan candidates. 


ALL voters can vote for the Nonpartisan candidates. 

Ingham County Commissioner Candidate Videos

In order for citizens to get to know candidates with opposition in the primaries for Ingham County Commissioner, the Lansing Area League of Women Voters asked candidates to tape their response to the questions asked by VOTE411. Candidates were given 5 minutes to respond to the questions below.

LWVLA Questions:

1. Please describe your qualifications and experiences, and explain why you are running for the Clinton County Board of Commissioners.

2. What are the priority issues facing the Clinton County Board of Commissioners and how would you address them if elected?

3. Of the many environmental issues facing our world, which do you think are most urgent locally? How do you see the county government helping to solve them?

4. Do you see the role of the county health department changing as a result of our experiences with COVID-19?

Four candidates agreed to participate. Some answered each question individually, others in on narrative.  All candidates running with opposition in their party received a request. Manuel Delgado Jr (D) and Clinton Tarver (R) chose not to participate.
