Harbor Springs Experiences Positive Voter Turnout on Election Day

Election Day is typically a little bit slower for smaller cities in northern Michigan, but the City of Harbor Springs says they’ve experienced great voter turnout—mainly due to one large proposal on the ballot.

Harbor Springs Public Schools is asking voters to pass a nearly $42 million bond proposal.

With a community comprised mainly of parents and teachers, all eyes have been on the ballot for months now.

City Clerk Nick Whitaker says that with this large ballot item, voter participation is even more important.

“Especially in a smaller community like this room, we have 1200 registered voters—you get a 10% turnout, one or two people can make a difference in what the outcome is,” said Whitaker.
