Your vote in Macomb County this fall is one of the most important in the nation. Here's why...
Your Local Impact
State and federal races - president, governor, Senators, etc. - get all the media attention. But your vote actually has a far greater impact at the local level. In 2020, roughly 30,000 people per district cast ballots in Macomb County's Commissioner races; that same year, there were over 5.5 million ballots cast across all of Michigan. This means your vote is 183 times more impactful in county contests than in state-wide races.
This fall, all thirteen seats on the Macomb County Commission are up for election. These are the people who will determine how democracy operates in Macomb County - and you can help determine control of the County Commission by voting this year.
