The 2018 Elections are done and even though it was a busy one, everything went well and our numbers were right on. 2019 Election Cycle should be a lot quieter and not so busy!!!!! The new Election Equipment performed as it should with only a few issues. Thank you for you patience while we get used to these new machines.
RUTLAND CHARTER TOWNSHIP CEMETERY
Please remember to pick up any flowers or other memorials from the cemetery before October 1st of each year as our Sexton and his crew do a cemetery clean up in October before the cemetery closes. The cemetery reopens in April.
The Cemetery is not maintained through the winter months when we have snow unless there is a burial scheduled. Please do not try to drive on the cemetery roads in the deep snow and get stuck. Thank you for your consideration on this. Please be mindful of our Cemetery Ordinance when memorializing the grave sites at the cemetery. For a complete look at our Cemetery Ordinance, please click the following link: Rutland Charter Township Cemetery Ordinance.
The Township will now be using the Federally purchased laptops for the pollbooks in both of our precincts. These laptops were given to us using HAVA (Help Americans Vote Act) Funds. These laptops will streamline the voting process for everyone.
Don't forget these two web addresses for all your voting information. They are direct links to the State of Michigan web pages.
