Welcome to the
Statement from the Chair on the 91st District Primary
One behalf of the Montcalm Democratic Party, I want to congratulate Tammy DeVries on her primary win on August 2nd. We look forward to working with her campaign to unseat Rep. Pat Outman.
The ability of women to make their own healthcare decisions is on the ballot in 2022. The ability of our schools to teach our children without the interference of west Michigan billionaires is on the ballot. Even the reality of the 2022 election is on the ballot. Most citizens in the 91st district believe in those things, regardless of party affiliation and our Democratic candidate will represent their interests better than the Outman political family.
As a clarification: contrary to reports and rumor, the Montcalm County Democratic Party was neutral during the primary. All candidates were invited to our events, but only candidates who attended our events received donations from our State Account, regardless of their primary status. While individual members of the party's board supported Frank LaFata and thank him for his efforts, there was no vote as a party to endorse one candidate or another.

Write-In Precinct Delegates!
A Quick FAQ:
Just because the deadline to be on the ballot has passed doesn't mean you can't be a Write In candidate. Simply visit the clerk in Stanton and they will help you with the paperwork.
You still need to let the county know you will be a write-in candidate. Simply writing in your name on a ballot will not be enough.
