Spring Lake and Ferrysburg voters have kept a steady flow for election workers, but the City of Grand Haven had experienced a low turnout as of Tuesday afternoon.

City of Ferrysburg Clerk Debbie Wierenga said the city’s proposed 0.5-mill bike path millage brought residents to the polls.

Ferrysburg residents also voted for mayor and three council members who are running unopposed. Wierenga said it has been a steady day.

“There’s usually always somebody in there,” she said.

Spring Lake Township Clerk Carolyn Boersma said election workers at four precincts have remained busy as voters determine the outcome of a $59.8 million bond issue for Spring Lake Public Schools.

“It’s been a nice, quiet and steady day,” she said.

City of Grand Haven voters will decide a $7 million local improvement proposal, and vote for council members and mayor.

Linda Browand, the city clerk, said they thought it might be busier, but as the city issued absentee ballots, they figured not many would turn out.

“It’s a pretty low turnout right now,” she said.

Ottawa County Clerk Dan Krueger said Holland and Spring Lake had received moderate voter turnout, and areas with renewal millages and uncontested candidate races had experienced a light turnout.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Krueger said no major elections issues had been reported.

“Everything is pretty quiet,” he said.
