The May 7 special election is over and officials are announcing the results.

Voters in Lansing selected nine individuals to fill the city’s charter revision commission. It’s the first time in decades that the state capital will rework its central governing document, a process estimated to take up to three years.

Elsewhere in mid-Michigan, bond proposals to fund improvements at various school districts were decided at the ballot box.

Local clerks have published unofficial results for the various races.
