How to vote
State law calls for separate ballots to be printed for Republican candidates and Democratic candidates — the same was done in the January 2008 primary.
When you arrive to vote, you must choose which type of ballot you would like by filling out an Application to Vote. Ferndale voters will also have the option of choosing a ballot that contains only the school bond proposal. Photos of the Application to Vote and all three ballots are shown in the gallery attached to this article.
It's not too late to get informed about the school bond issue. Visit Ferndale Patch's topic page to read our previous coverage on the bond issue and also be sure to read the exact school bond proposal ballot language.
