What is the difference between a primary and general election?

In a primary election, voters choose a party and vote for candidates from that party only. If votes are cast for candidates from different parties in a primary election, the partisan ballot will be rejected. Choosing a party for a primary election is not the same as declaring a party.

In a general election, all voters elect officials from the party nominees and independent candidates.

Candidate Financial Forms

Candidates are required to file financial declaration forms. These forms are available at from the Michigan Secretary of State.
