Area townships go to polls Tuesday

Residents in some area townships will be going to the polls Tuesday, March 13, to elect supervisors and clerks. Many townships will also be holding their annual meetings that day.

Townships have the option of holding their elections in November with the general election, but some have chosen to remain with the traditional March date.

By law, the polls must be open from 5-8 p.m. No public meetings or school events can be held from 6-8 p.m.

Canvassing meetings must be held within two days of the election. In many townships the canvassing meeting will be held the same day as the election, either just prior to or just following the annual meeting.

Townships in our area holding elections next Tuesday include Bullard, Fawn Lake, Thomastown, Moran and Staples.

For more information contact the township clerk.
