View the MI House District 2 Candidate Forum
The LWV Grosse Pointe conducted the first virtual candidate forum, in collaboration with the LWV Detroit, on June 17, 2020. This forum was for the Michigan House of Representatives District 2 candidates. District 2 includes the City of Grosse Pointe, Grosse Pointe Farms, Grosse Pointe Park, and parts of Detroit.
Candidates Ms. Taylor Harrell and Representative Joe Tate participated in the forum via Zoom. The candidates were asked a series of questions submitted by League members and the general public.
In our continuing effort to educate voters, we encourage you to view the recorded video of the forum. You can view the forum on the LWVGP YouTube channel at the link below. Feel free to share this link with non-league members.
We hope this provides you with insight on the candidates’ positions before casting your ballot during the August 4 Primary Election.

ABSENTEE VOTING IN MICHIGAN
An important reminder (especially after witnessing those very long voter lines in other states’ primaries!), that thanks to the passage of Promote the Vote in 2018, Michigan now has “no-reason Absentee Voting”.So should you prefer to vote in the comfort of your own home, you can request an absentee ballot without needing a reason. Then you may either mail it in or drop it off with your local clerk.
Please see this Absentee Voting FAQ for more information.
Go to Michigan.gov/sos to request your absentee ballot . Also, please note that you will be given the option to make this request permanently or just for the next upcoming election.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The League of Women Voters, in both its values and practices, affirms its belief and commitment to diversity and inclusion. LWV recognizes that diverse perspectives are important and necessary for responsible and representative decision making, and subscribes to the belief that diversity and inclusion are fundamental to the values it upholds.
Inclusiveness enhances the organization’s ability to respond more effectively to changing conditions and needs, and therefore, LWV will in both principles and practices promote the inclusion in participation in any activity of LWV all persons whatever their gender, race, socio-economic status, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin or disability.
