There has been considerable confusion over split-ticket voting. The Clerk's Office is sharing information on your voting options for the November Presidential Election. Please see the graphic to learn more.
If the voter selects a “Straight Party Ticket,” AND also selects a candidate under a different party, the ballot will be tabulated and is NOT spoiled.
Due to the passage of Proposal 3 in 2018, the Michigan Constitution provides voters with a Straight Party Ticket voting option.
If you select one of the political parties in the Straight Party Ticket section, but would like to vote for a candidate of a different party for any of the partisan races, you may vote for that candidate.
The remainder of the partisan section will default to the candidates for the political party selected in the Straight Party Ticket section.
