Every four years, registered voters can vote in the Presidential Primary election. In 2024, the Presidential Primary in Michigan will be held on Tuesday, February 27.
To participate in the Presidential Primary, registered voters must request, by mail or email, a Ballot Selection Form or an Absent Voter Ballot Application Form.
Voters who do not return their Ballot Selection Form with a designated ballot type will automatically be mailed a Local Ballot to participate in the Special General Election to fill a vacancy on the Clinton Township Board of Trustees.
Both forms require voters to check one of three boxes, designating Democratic Party, Republican Party, or Local Only. Selecting Democratic or Republican does not identify voters with a specific party. Instead, the selection allows voters to narrow the number of presidential candidates to choose from.
Selecting a Democrat or Republican Ballot also allows voters to choose a candidate in the Special General Election to fill the Clinton Township Board of Trustees vacant seat. Voters can select the Republican, Democrat, or Libertarian candidate and are not required to vote according to the type of Presidential Ballot chosen.
Those who check the Local Only box to NOT vote in the Presidential election can also vote in the Special General Election to fill the vacant seat on the Clinton Township Board of Trustees.
The three Special General Election candidates for the Clinton Township Board of Trustees represent the Democratic, Republican, and Libertarian parties. Their contact information is available at Search by Candidate on the Macomb County Clerk/ Register of Deeds website.
