The 2020 Primary elections are scheduled for August 4, 2020. At that time, Oakland Township residents will have an opportunity to select the Democratic and Republican candidates that will be on the November General Election ballot.
The positions on the August and November ballots include the Township Board officers and Trustees, as well as the Parks Commission members. Historically, there have been very few Democratic candidates for the positions, so the August primary effectively determined the elected officials. This year, we have two Democratic candidate running for positions. As a result, both your August and November votes will play a roll determining our Township Leadership team.
We will be soliciting input from the candidates on their qualifications, priorities and goals, as well as changes they would like to see made (if any) if they are elected. We hope they are willing to provide their input, so you can make informed decisions in August and November. We will post their input if we receive it.
