On Tuesday, August 4 there will be an election only for those residing in the Pontiac School District (PSD). All of the municipalities in the district will be voting on this millage question that day. In Auburn Hills, we have about 7,300 voters who reside in the PSD, all within 5 precincts.
As always, you can get an absentee ballot if you think you may be out of the City that day. Even if you work outside the City and think there is a slight chance you may not be back to Auburn Hills by 8 pm, you are welcome to vote absentee. If you are over 65, you can vote absentee just because you don’t want to go to the polls! If voting absentee, you must be certain to get your voted ballot to us by 8 pm Tuesday, August 4. Prior to August 4, you can mail the ballot, or drop it in one of our two drop boxes, or bring it in yourself.
Our PSD voters reside in precincts 1, 4, 6, 8, and 9. If you are unsure whether you are in the PSD, please feel free to call us at 248-370-9402.
We have sample ballots here in the Clerk’s office, and you can also apply for an absentee here in person.
Please remember to vote. This is a 5 year millage question, for a sinking fund designated to fix school buildings. I’ve always believed the old classic Clerk’s line about voting – “if you don’t vote, don’t complain”. Whether you are for the millage or against it, your only voice is your vote. Please “speak up” on August 4. The polls will be open from 7 am to 8 pm.
Terri Kowal, City Clerk
