Voter Guide - 2016 Genesee County General Election

The LWV of the Flint Area subscribes to VOTE411.org as a means to provide the electorate information relevant to voting. Within this site, you can check your registration status, check your precint number and location, see what will be on your ballot, and more.

In addition to VOTE411.org, we publish a PDF version of 2016 Genesee County General Election Voter Guide that some people prefer. This file includes the names of candidates in races throughout Genesee County. A number of candidates responded to our request for information by the deadline to produce the 2016 Genesee County General Election Voter Guide. If a candidate's information is not included in the PDF version, they may still participate in the on-line Voter Guide - VOTE411.org right up until Election Day; this site is where you can get the most current information.

In addition to viewing the guide, you can print your selections for reference at the polls.

2016 Genesee County General Election Voter Guide

Candidates and their views are neither supported or opposed by the League of Women Voters. The LWV never endorses or opposes a candidate for office. Our goal is to share information in a civil, non-confrontational format so the voters can learn more about their choices at the polls.

NOW Recruiting Poll Watchers for Voter Protection

The LWV is recruiting Poll Watchers as part of our Voter Protection and Public Advocacy program. This is a great way to get active in an important civic activity, yet remain non-partisan. Poll watchers are trained to "observe and record" activities on Election Day as a means to continuously improve the election experience for voters. For more information please contact Linda Hoff at lwvflintarea@gmail.com

Election Inspectors NEEDED

Election Inspectors are needed in many communities throughout the county. This is a valuable and important community service. Training is provided through the Clerk's office and, per law, a nominal payment is provided to all workers.

Please contact your local Clerk for more information.

NOTE: you do not have to be a resident of the community in order to serve
