Election Information

How can we elect people we want to the Township board?

Everyone needs to VOTE in the August Primary.  Voters, learn as much as possible about the incumbents and ALL candidates running in the August Primaries  Attend Plymouth Twp. board meetings and read PlymouthVoice.com, the Plymouth-Canton Patch, and Hometownlife.com to learn about decisions made by those currently holding office.  Attend Plymouth Concerned Citizens meetings to meet and hear from those running for office.  

I've heard I may need to vote a specific party to have a chance to determine our local leaders. Why?

You may need to vote Republican to effect a change in our Township board. 
The reason is obvious when you review past election data.  In general, 

 The majority of voters in Plymouth Twp. vote Republican.
 Local Republican candidates who win the primary are usually elected in the November General Election
 Select the Republican who best supports your hopes for our community.

IN THE PRIMARY, VOTE A SINGLE PARTY!

In the Primary, you can vote only ONE party. You cannot select from more than one party on your ballot.  If you do, you will negate your vote.

IN THE GENERAL ELECTION, YOU CAN CHOOSE!

In the General Election, you are allowed to select candidates from any of the parties represented.

PAST DATA PROVES IT!
