In addition to the candidates for federal and state offices who had to meet the Earth Day filing deadline for the August 5th primary. Major party candidates for county and municipal offices up for election this year also needed to file by 4:00 P.M. Tuesday with the Washtenaw County Clerk as well.Yesterday, I promised that "I'll write up the county and municipal candidates tomorrow." It's yesterday's tomorrow, so I've kept my promise.
Independent candidates can still appear on the November ballot, but they must file by July 17th.
No Republicans filed for Mayor or City Council in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti, only Democrats. That means that, absent an independent challenger, the winner of the Democratic primary in August will run unopposed in November.
