BAY CITY, MI – Voters will be heading to the polls on Tuesday, Aug. 2 to determine which candidates will see success in the primaries and move forward to the November election.
Depending on their party affiliation, Bay County voters will be selecting from a variety of candidates, including four Republicans that are running for the newly created 35th District State Senate seat. Two democrats will be squaring off for the Bay County Clerk’s seat and both Democratic and Republican candidates will be duking it out for a seat on the Bay County Board of Commissioners.
Only one proposal is on the ballot in Bay County and it only applies to residents of Kawkawlin Township. A $150,000 millage is on the ballot to fund the construction, maintenance and improvement of local public roads in the township.
