LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Primary elections are best described as an election to decide what choices you will have. The field of candidates will be narrowed down by voting, but also on the ballot will be several notable measures that the public will either pass or reject.

Polls opened at 7:00 a.m. Tuesday and closed at 8:00 p.m. The general election will occur on Nov. 2.

News 10 will update the races listed below throughout the evening on our ELECTION TRACKER as results come in.

Lansing Mayoral Primary

Mayoral candidates for the City of Lansing were narrowed down to two in this primary. They are:

“It is an honor to serve as the Mayor of Lansing, and I greatly appreciate the continual support of the residents of Lansing as shown in the primary election today. This campaign has shown that my administration has both the drive and the citywide support to carry us through to the general election. I am truly honored by the great number of Lansing residents who turned out to the polls in support of our vision. Of course, this success is in large part due to the combined efforts of my wife, children, city staff, campaign donors, and volunteers. I am grateful to everyone who has played such a critical role in getting us where we are today. Because of our team’s hard work, I feel incredibly optimistic about the momentum we have heading into the general.”
