Voter Guide

Know Your State Candidates? LWV Voter Guides Can Help.

The League of Women Voters of Michigan have published easy-to-read, newspaper-style Voter Guides that provide information from candidates running for state offices in Michigan. Guides include candidates for Governor and Lt. Governor, State Board of Education, and the Boards of Education for U of M, Michigan State U, Wayne State U, Supreme Court, and the wording and explanation of State Ballot Proposals. The voter guides assembled responses to questions using candidate’s own words.

Voter Guides are available at the Alpena County Library, Alcona County Libraries, and Presque Isle Libraries.
