September 9, 2016 – The City of Midland has posted a new survey that is open for comment on E-CityHall, the City’s online public engagement platform. The two-question survey asks for input on a proposed change to move City Council elections from odd-year to even-year elections. The proposed change is being considered because it may reduce some election costs and improve voter turnout.
To access the survey, residents should visit http://bit.ly/ecityhall and click on “Should the City of Midland's City Council elections be moved from November in the "odd years" to November in the "even years"?” under the Open Topics tab. The topic can also be accessed on the City of Midland website at www.cityofmidlandmi.gov by clicking on the E-CityHall link in the left toolbar.
Residents are encouraged to sign up for a free, secure E-CityHall account before completing the survey. Registering for an account allows participants’ feedback to be shown to other survey respondents, alerts the participant when other responses and topics are posted, and provides important demographic information. Registration is not required to participate.
