There is only one write-in candidate for Precinct 2 on Grand Ledge City Council. Michael Doty is the only person who filed for the position, City Clerk Gregory Newman said. Doty serves on the Parks and Recreation Commission, according to the City of Grand Ledge website. All it takes is one person to write Doty’s name on the ballot for him to be elected, Newman said. However, people walking in to vote have to know about Doty beforehand, because city employees cannot say anything about write-in candidates.
