Primary election

Duggan moved into the city of Detroit from the suburb of Levonia in 2012. In June 2013, after entering the Detroit mayoral race, Duggan was removed from the ballot, with the court holding that he had not been registered as a Detroit voter for long enough before submitting his petition signatures. He then re-entered the race as a write-in candidate.[7][8]

Duggan, along with Benny Napoleon, qualified to move on to the general election for Mayor of Detroit after the August 6 primary.
