LANSING - State Representative Tim Bledsoe (D - Grosse Pointe) announced today that he will be mailing information regarding the six ballot initiatives that will appear on the November ballot to households in his legislative district.
"Aside from a number of other races on the November ballot, voters will have an opportunity to decide a total of six statewide initiatives," Bledsoe said. "All six were placed on the ballot through the citizen petition process, not by action of the legislature."
In October, Rep. Bledsoe’s office will send out detailed information on each of these six initiatives prepared by the nonpartisan Legislative Service Bureau and House Fiscal Agency. Every home in House District One with a registered voter will receive this pamphlet, giving people a chance to study the issues carefully in advance of the election.
In addition to the six state initiatives, Wayne County voters will decide six other initiatives placed on the ballot by the Wayne County Commission and Detroit voters will decide yet six additional initiatives placed on the ballot by the Detroit City Council. Wayne County Clerk Kathy Garrett has announced that the Wayne County ballot will be two pages long.
"With a large turnout expected due to the Presidential election on the ballot, lines could be long if voters linger to make decisions at the ballot box," said Bledsoe. "Please review this information carefully before going to the polls and make note of your preferences."
