Spranger submitted petition language to the Macomb County Clerk's Office on April 1, 2014. The Macomb County Election Commission held a clarity hearing on the petition language on April 15, 2014. The board voted 3-0 to reject the petition language. Spranger indicated at the time that she would submit new petition language.
On May 21, 2014, the Macomb County Election Commission voted against Spranger's new petition language. Spranger said she intended to file petition language against Fouts a third time, but would drop proceedings against Wojno. On May 23, 2014, Spranger filed new petition language against Fouts. On June 10, 2014, the election commission once again rejected Spranger's petition language.
