Preview of May 5 special election

The special election Tuesday, May 5, was called to decide a statewide road funding proposal, but there are some local questions as well.

Click here for all our coverage of those proposals or use the "Election" link on our home page.

There, you'll find our coverage of the local impact of the statewide Proposal 1 as well as stories on the operating millage renewals up for a vote for the Fennville and Hopkins public school districts, the road and fire millages proposed in Dorr Township, a fire equipment millage in Martin Township and the renewal of a road millage in Salem Township.

Polls for the election will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Voters are now required to present photo ID at the polls, such as a Michigan driver’s license or identification card.

Anyone who does not have an acceptable form of photo ID or is not carrying one can still vote. They will sign a brief form stating that they’re not in possession of a photo ID. Their ballots will be included with all others and counted on election day.
