Welcome to CivCity's latest news and updates!
Get Your Vote On! AnnArborVotes.org
The Tuesday, Aug. 2 election is just 3 weeks away – crazy! You'll be voting for local candidates, including Ann Arbor city councilmembers, Washtenaw County commissioners and more. Two tax proposals are also on the Aug. 2 ballot in Ann Arbor – for sidewalk/street repair and construction, and Washtenaw Community College operations.
We've launched a new voter resource, AnnArborVotes.org
, to help you be the most informed voter on this planet – at least, on Planet Ann Arbor. Check it out!

We're in the let-everyone-know-about-it phase, so you'll be seeing posters and cards around town making sure everyone is aware of this important local election on Aug. 2.
Posters in the windows of The Workantile on Main Street.
We need your help to spread the word – on social media, in the real world, or whatever other dimension you occupy. Let us know what you think!
CivCity Badges in AADL's Summer Game!
Players earn points and CivCity badges for doing things like attending public meetings and finding game codes there. We also awarded badges to several players who marched with us in the July 4th parade. (See below for proof!) More badge drops to come, so stay tuned and stay civic!!
Parading for CivCity!
We had a blast on July 4th, with CivCity supporters marching to promote the Aug. 2 local election and our AnnArborVotes.org
online resource. Thanks to everyone who participated in the Ann Arbor Fourth of July parade, and thanks to the Jaycees for organizing yet another year of festivities!
