Voters in Michigan, 6 other states, weigh in on local ballot measures May 4

LANSING, Michigan: Voters in twenty-eight counties are heading to the polls today to cast their votes on various local issues. Three school board recalls are on the ballot along with the majority of issues being about local school taxes or bonds. Most of the school property tax issues deal with renewing the property tax on non primary residency properties. Schools are hopeful throughout the state that their issues will be passed by voters this time around. Along with the vote in Michigan, local elections are being held in California, Indiana, Maryland, Montana, North Carolina and Ohio.

Not all local elections have been posted or listed online.


Montana 2006 recall effort billboard may have violated law

HAMILTON, Montana: A nine-page ruling by Commissioner of Political Practices Dennis Unsworth stated that Jack Vallance violated state campaign finance laws when he flew his airplane with an electronic billboard message that campaigned for the recall of Hamilton city councilor Bob Scott. The ruling stated that the act should yield a civil penalty. According to state law, billboard signs must contain information on who funded the sign.

The recall election was held in 2006, in which Scott retained his seat, with a slim margin of 152-150. The recall was the result of accusations that Scott implement “playground antics” that hurt the city and residents, including submitting a $152 travel expense reimburesment two years prior to that.[1]
