Michigan’s lawmakers have amended the State’s Election Law to require a statewide presidential primary election on February 28, 2012. The law calls for separate ballots to be printed for Republican candidates and for Democratic candidates, just as was done in January 2008.
Below are examples of ballot options for Ferndale Residents who also live in the Ferndale School District. Those in the Hazel Park District will face only the primaries.
