City clerk warns of complicated local ballot

November 1, 1994 — Ann Arbor City Clerk Winifred
Northcross warned that the Ann Arbor ballot would be more
complicated than most expected. The two-sided ballot included six
proposals and 78 candidates for governor, congressional, state and
local offices.

“Voters should understand that this is a very long
ballot,” Northcross said. She reminded students that they
could pick up sample ballots at the city clerk’s office if
they were wanted to prepare before election day.
