    Default What's up with different ballot styles?

    So when I went to vote I gave them my name and all that and they gave me a sheet to sign certifying that I was who I said. I took that sheet to another table and they looked at it and said "Ballot style 68" and they pulled out a ballot with "68" on top. What does that mean? Why don't they give everyone the same ballot? What determines the ballot style they give you?
    Do registered Repugs/Dems/Independents get different ballots?

    I am suspicious.

    where you live inside a county will determine your ballot style.

    Local elections are listed on different ballots...for example: town officials or council members or state senators are different on each style ballot because your address will determine which local election or measures you're voting for.

    If you Google your state name "ballot numbers" it should show you a list of all the different numbered ballots.

    Ballots come in three different types of ballot styles in Michigan (two are paper, one is digital). It is very common.

    Ours are different,depending on which county. Not everybody gets to vote for everything.
