Tuesday was primary election day in Lansing.
Voters decided Mayoral and city council candidates for November’s general election. In Haslett, voters approved a $10-million sinking fund for school building maintenance.
A predictable feature of many primaries is low voter turnout. Tuesday in Lansing was no exception.
According to Lansing City Clerk Chris Swope, fewer than 9% of registered voters took time to cast a ballot in Michigan’s Capital City.
Swope joins Current State to talk about low-turnout primaries and other issues.
