But many won’t bother to vote on non-partisan races and questions on the ballot.

Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson says many voters just forget.

“Some people when they vote for one party or another, which is about 60% of the population, they don’t realize that there is more to the ballot,” says Johnson.

Johnson recommends voters check out the Michigan Voter Information Center website

The website has information about what issues will be on local ballots tomorrow.
