Michigan is gearing up for a municipal primary on August 3. Communities will be voting on new mayors, city council members and proposals.

While presidential and gubernatorial elections tend to steal the spotlight, local elections are critical because they are the most likely to impact your day-to-day life. Your local leaders are making decisions that shape everything from public safety and education to how and when your trash is collected.
