  On September 7, 2018, the US Supreme Court, refused to hear an appeal of a ruling banning straight party ticket voting on the Michigan ballot. In effect, this decision eliminates the "Straight Party" option on the November 2018 ballot. Voters will need to vote each position in the partisan section of the ballot for their vote to count. If you choose to vote only certain races on the ballot, your ballot will still count. Unvoted sections will result in an undervote in that race only. Your local clerk is available to answer any questions regarding this matter.
