The City of East Lansing’s income tax proposal on yesterday’s ballot passed with around 58% of voters voting “yes” (some other sources say as high as 61%). East Lansing Info was on top of the outcome late last night. ELi also has a short survey asking voters to explain their vote of “yes” or “no” on the income tax proposal.
Other general results include:
– A passing of the Ingham County ballot proposal for a new jail millage
– Gretchen Whitmer winning the Democratic Party’s nomination for Governor of Michigan
– Bill Schuette winning the Republican Party’s nomination for Governor of Michigan
More results on other races, and more statistical details can be found at a number of other sources, including:
