I'm ashamed of my neighbors in Spring Lake. The voter turnout is embarrassing.


That was my comment during the the Spring Lake School bond proposal, where was everyone !!


where are the democratic votes for state house?


I guessing Democrats in Ottawa County don't count. So the don't even bother.

Tri-cities realist

They only reported results for elections where there was a choice (other than write-ins)

It is disgusting to see how few voters turned out to vote in the primary! Do the voters truly understand the importance of the primary? Some have told me that they only vote in the National elections, but they say they are discouraged because they always have to choose between the lesser of two evils. The reason is that people choose NOT to vote in the primary election which is where they can choose who they want to be the candidate(s) who will be on the ballot in the final elections on both the state and federal level. If voters are this unaware of the voting process or are just too lazy to exercise their precious right to vote, I would advise them to review the governmental process thoroughly before voting again and to also study every issue on the ballot as well as the candidate's stand on the issues BEFORE they vote again. And then, be sure to vote. Then, and only then, do they have a right to complain!
