There are two ballot initiatives that all Genesee County residents will be voting on today. The first is a Genesee County 911 Surcharge to help fund emergency services. This is actually a renewal of a surcharge that was approved in 2017. The cost equals out to just under $2 a month per resident.

The second countywide initiative is the Genesee Health Systems mental health services millage. MidMichiganNow does a great job of breaking down what the millage is requesting, and where the money will be spent in Genesee County. You can see the millage proposal here.

There will be other proposals and millage requests depending on the district you live in. Genesee County residents in Flint, Bendle Schools, Gaines Township, and Atlas Township will all have specific items to weigh in on.

If you have any questions about voting today, you can get them all answered on the Michigan Voter Information page here.
