Welcome to CivCity's latest news and updates!
Coming Soon: AnnArborVotes.org
We're working hard to build a knock-your-socks-off voter resource focused on local candidates and ballot proposals. AnnArborVotes.org will be launching next month – stay tuned!
A peek at the still-under-construction AnnArborVotes.org.
Special thanks to The Buhr Foundation for helping fund this effort!
We're thrilled that Meghan Cuneo, a senior at the University of Michigan, is CivCity's first intern.
She's already working on several projects: 1) a "Welcome to the Neighborhood" brochure for new residents, with a focus on civic information; 2) an Adopt-A-Poll pilot project for the Aug. 2 election, to show how Election Day can be a celebration; and 3) a strategic plan for promoting local civic engagement within the university's Greek community, in partnership with the UM Ginsberg Center
Meghan studies political science, women's studies and marketing. Please say hello if you see her around town!

Registration Deadline: July 5
July 5 is the deadline to register for the Aug. 2 primary. In addition to candidates for local office, the ballot for Ann Arbor voters will include two tax proposals: A city sidewalk and street millage, and the general operating millage for Washtenaw Community College.
