With the Michigan presidential primary election now in the rear view mirror, voters in Washtenaw County have another election just up the road.
Eastern Michigan University political science professor Edward Sidlow says the primary election could cause less people to vote in the May 3rd election. He believes some voters could think it's too close to the last election, so they simply will not vote. Sidlow added that 24-hour news cycles sometimes overwhelms voters as well.
