Macomb Township residents will have opportunity to vote in the OPEN PRIMARY ELECTION scheduled for Tuesday, August 4, 2020 throughout the State of Michigan. An open primary has both Democratic and Republican offices on the ballot, but a voter can only vote in one party during the August Primary Election. If a voter “cross-party votes” (votes for candidates in both the Republican and Democratic offices) the partisan section of the ballot will not count. Any non-partisan votes cast on ballot would be valid votes. If voter is at precinct and makes a mistake, they may let an Election Inspector know so the ballot can be spoiled and replaced to vote correctly.  If you are voting by absent voter ballot, please contact the Clerk’s Office at 992-0710 x3. The voter will be instructed to seal the ballot in the ballot envelope and write SPOILED on the outside. The envelope is returned in person or by mail and a new ballot will be issued. The August Primary is to “reduce the number of candidates” for each office by party. Winners in August Primary Election are placed on the General Election ballot on November 3, 2020. If residents will be out of the community on Election Day or need any information regarding the upcoming election, contact the Township Clerk’s Office at 992-0710 x3.
