Registration deadline nears for Aug. 6 vote

By Melissa Burnor

Michigan residents have until July 8 to register in order to vote in 
the Aug. 6 election. Nearly all residents in Blissfield, Riga, Ogden, 
Palmyra townships as well as those living in the the villages of 
Deerfield and Blissfield will have at least one issue on the ballot.

Residents of the Blissfield School District will be voting on a new 
1.25 mill sinking fund millage for a period of 10 years, 2013-2022.

Lenawee County is also developing a district library system and will 
ask voters not already considered part of a library system for a 10-
year 6-mill levy. This millage will be on the ballot in Palmyra, 
Ogden and Deerfield townships and Deerfield Village. According to 
ballot language it would raise $968,400 in the first year to run the 
library. Currently the library is funded by the county general fund. 
The Schultz-Holmes Memorial Library has contractual agreements with 
townships for areas that are in the Blissfield School District.
