This past Election Day in Grand Ledge resulted in a poor turnout of voters. According to Grand Ledge City Clerk Gregory Newman, only 10 percent of the registered voters in the city of Grand Ledge came out to the polls to vote on Nov. 3. “Ten percent is a very disappointing number,” Grand Ledge Mayor Kalmin Smith said. This year was a non-presidential election year where only city council spots were up for election.
