Several Michigan Districts Move to November Elections

The Detroit News did a story that covered the move by some districts from May elections to November elections.

Detroit News: Schools opt for November Elections (12/23/06)

It really bothered me that schools are suddenly getting credit for "saving money" by moving to November elections... they are really stopping the waste! They knew full well that May would cost money, whereas November would cost little -- or nothing.

The Detroit News then ran an editorial that further urged schools:

The editors gently reminded me that I shouldn't be so blunt!
