Nearly 26,000 ballots cast in Presidential Election

Almost 26,000 ballots were cast in the City of Taylor yesterday during the November 8 Presidential Election. The election drew nearly 57 percent of the registered voters in the community.

The entire log of the Taylor votes can be found on the Clerk's office page. Please note that they are all unofficial until confirmed by Wayne County. The Board of Education voters are incomplete, because Wayne County is responsible for counting the write-in votes. Also note that these are only Taylor votes. In many cases, the City's votes were just a portion of a vote tally (for example, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton won in Taylor, approximately 50 percent to 45 percent, over the eventual president elect, Republican Donald Trump).

In races important to the City, U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-12th District), State Rep. Erika Geiss and Wayne County Commissioner Raymond Basham all earned new terms in office. In ballot questions important to the community, the regional transit levy was defeated locally and overall; the Taylor Charter amendment to make the treasurer's position part-time passed by a 58 percent to 42 percent margin; the Taylor School District's enhancement millage passed by a 59-41 percent margin; and the Wayne County RESA school enhancement millage was defeated locally, 54-46 percent, but passed overall (so it will go into effect countywide).
