November 6th Election Sample Ballot for the City of Bloomfield Hills

There will be three ballots published in the City of  Bloomfield Hills Hills for the 2012 Presidential Election  and state and local issues. The one  below below is for the Precinct 1  the city's largest which will vote in the Bloomfield Hills School District. Precinct 2  will have two ballots similar to thePrecinct 1 . One will be for the residents of Precinct 2  residents who vote in the Bloomfield Hills Schools district and one will be for 
Precinct 2  residents who  vote in the Birmingham School Schools District. Both districts will be electing School Board  members this fall. Whenever there are multiple ballots in local elections the order the candidates are listed in, rotates in the various precincts. The Candidates running for Bloomfield Hills School Board will be listed in different order in the Precinct 1  and Precinct 2 (Bloomfield Hills Schools) ballots. This is to give each candidate (as much as possible) a fair rotation. In the case of the Birmingham Schools which will appear on only one ballot in our city, there is no rotation.

The Ballot for this November's election is considered a "long one." The various proposals are said to be particularly grueling. Luckily  they occur after important local races for State Rep and School Board Planning your vote in advance will help you be accurate and get done faster. Sample Ballots will be posted at the polling places and you can make a copy to take to the polling place with you  by clicking on the below links.
