Detroit Elections 2017: City Clerk primary candidates

Candidate videos produced by Wayne State's Citizen Detroit


City voters will head to the polls on Aug. 8 for a primary election that will determine which candidates advance to the Nov. 7 General Election. City Clerk is among the offices up for election. Six candidates are running for the office, which is currently held by Janice Winfrey. The top two vote-getters will advance to the General Election.

Citizen Detroit, a community forum established at Wayne State University, recorded videos with all eight candidates running for Detroit's top office. Watch the videos below.
