When residents of the Livonia school district vote Tuesday on a $195 million bond proposal, they may notice a slight change on their ballot application. Under Michigan law, by signing the application, the voter certifies that he or she is a U.S. citizen. The revised application forms also remind voters that they must be citizens in order to vote.

Tuesday’s election will be the first to use the new language approved by the Legislature.Full Article: Tuesday's ballot applications will have new citizenship language | Observer and Eccentric Newspapers and Hometown Weeklies | hometownlife.com.
