Michigan voters go to the polls on Tuesday.

School bond issues dominate the ballot in most of Michigan.

For example, Kalamazoo voters are being asked to decide on a $62 million bond request. If voters give their OK, the district would spend most of the money on maintaining city school buildings.

There are a few elected offices on the ballot of note.

In Genesee County, voters are picking a new state senator. Former senator John Gleason stepped down after winning the Genesee County clerk’s election last fall.

In Troy, voters are picking a replacement for former mayor Janice Daniels. Daniels was recalled last November, after a sometimes controversial year in office. The winner of Tuesday’s six way race will serve out the remaining two and a half years left in Daniel’s term.

In Dexter, voters are being asked if they wish their community to stay a village or to become Michigan’s newest city.
