MLive political team to host Facebook Live overview of Aug. 2 primary
With the primary election just one week away, MLive’s political team will be hosting a Facebook Live at 12 p.m. Tuesday, July 26, to give a rundown of what voters can expect on the ballot Aug. 2.
Biggest of those races will be the Republican gubernatorial primary. Voters will have the option to choose between Bloomfield Township businessman Kevin Rinke, Norton Shores commentator Tudor Dixon, Kalamazoo chiropractor Garrett Soldano, Allendale real estate broker Ryan Kelley and Farmington Hills pastor Ralph Rebandt.
Though Michigan does not require a voter to register by party in order to vote in the primary or general election, voters do not have the option to “split” their tickets – or vote in more than one party column – when voting in the August primary. They may do so, however, in the November general election.
Not just the governorship is on the ballot, however. Redistricting has also shaken up several races for the U.S. House, and put the state legislature in a much more competitive spot than in years prior. These issues and more will be covered by MLive’s senior political reporter Simon Schuster and Ben Orner, who covers politics and voting, with time for questions from participating audience members near the end of the event.
