Jackson Mayoral Primary: Mahoney, Wilson Will Face Off In November

States are beginning to plan to pivot to conduct largely vote by mail elections during the coronavirus pandemic. In Michigan, two to three million voters are expected to vote from home.

Jackson County Commissioner Daniel J. Mahoney and retired corrections officer John Wilson will compete in November to become the city of Jackson's next mayor.

They beat City Council Members Laura Dwyer Schlecte and Jeromy Alexander in Tuesday's nonpartisan primary, according to unofficial results posted early Wednesday morning with all precincts reporting.

Results are unofficial until they're certified by the county's Board of Canvassers in coming days.

Along with the mayor's race, two Jackson City Council seats, Ward 1 and Ward 3, will be up for grabs on November's ballot. Those races didn't have enough contenders to be contested in the primary.
