When and where to vote in Aug. 5 primary
The polls for the Tuesday, Aug. 5 primary election will be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Remember to bring photo identification, such as a driver's license or state identification card, to present at the polls.
Because it is a primary election, voters are reminded to not split their ballot when it comes to the partisan races. Voters must select either all Republican or all Democratic candidates otherwise the partisan portion of the ballot will be voided.
However, a split ballot won't affect the non-partisan issues such as millage proposals. Those votes will be counted even if a ballot is split in the partisan portion.
In Oxford Township, voters can cast their ballots at the Oxford Veterans Memorial Civic Center, 28 N. Washington St. (Precinct 1); Oxford Elementary School, 109 Pontiac St. (Precincts 2 and 7); Oxford Free Methodist Church, 790 S. Lapeer Rd. (Precinct 3); Christ the King Church, 1550 W. Drahner Rd.
