Introduction: Just the Facts in 2018 Michigan

“Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts,” former U.S. Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan famously said.

With that sentiment in mind, the Center for Michigan and Bridge Magazine present this nonpartisan, easy-to-use guide. It’s about many of the facts and issues that matter most as the Michigan governorship, all 148 seats in the state legislature, and other statewide offices are all up for election at the same time in 2018 for the first time in eight years.

Whether you’re Democrat or Republican, white or a minority, senior citizen or millennial, urban or rural, rich or poor, engaged or isolated, staunchly opinionated or skeptical of all, the actual conditions on the ground matter for your state’s future.

Each chapter of this guide is designed as a quick, five-minute read.
