Elections this fall are bringing a change to Ingham County. This November there will be only 14 seats on the ballot for county commissioner, a loss of two districts from the 16 that the county has had for the past decade. According to Commissioner Carol Koenig, the cutback is based on a population decrease in the county. “Every 10 years the census tells us if we have lost population, which we have,” Koenig said. The result is two fewer seats on the board.
