Plenty of election information available

Nov. 2 is General Election Day, and there are contested positions across Wayne County. These local, nonpartisan elections are a time to set political parties aside. Instead, let’s take time to learn about the position qualifications and get to know the candidates so we can vote not by their party but by their fit for the position and alignment with our own values and interests.

Visit the Wayne County Board of Elections website at to view a list of candidates for all elections countywide and to review voter registration, polling locations and sample ballots. The deadline to register to vote is Monday, Oct. 4. Absentee voting, by mail and in person begins Tuesday, Oct. 5.

The League of Women Voters provides a great outline for assessing candidates at Look for opportunities to interact with local candidates to better assess their ability to represent you and the community as a whole.

See you at the polls.
