Who Represents You?

Local Representation

Michigan has more units of local government than most other states and a strong tradition of local control. More than 2,000 local township and city clerks run all elections in Michigan. The 83 county clerks provide coordination within the county.

In the tri-county area of Clinton, Eaton and Ingham counties, there are:

  • 16 Cities*

  • 14 Villages

  • 48 Townships

  • 21 School districts*


All units of local government have elected governing boards and the ability to levy taxes. Local governments make decisions about issues that directly affect our daily lives.

The Michigan Secretary of State provides training for local clerks and overall election coordination. In the tri-county area, contact your county clerk for more information:
