The Lansing Journal journeys: Informed voting in Lansing elections


submitted by Bonnie Cuthbert and Terri Stallinga

“I tried to do a selfie with both of us,” said Bonnie Cuthbert, “but my arms just weren’t long enough!” So she allowed her husband Jim to be featured in this Lansing Journal Journeys photo.

“Jim Cuthbert voted on Election Day after reading the great article about all the candidates in The Lansing Journal,” wrote his wife, Bonnie Cuthbert. (Photo: Bonnie Cuthbert)

Tom and Terri Stallinga also practiced informed voting on Election Day, although Tom was already finished voting by the time The Lansing Journal arrived at their polling place.
