Oakland County voters to pick major party candidates and vote on tax questions on Aug. 7 ballot

  Democrats and Republicans pick their candidates for the Nov. 6 general election in the Aug. 7 primary for offices ranging from U.S. senator to local parks commissioner and constable.
  But there are also nonpartisan judicial primaries and a slew of tax questions in communities across the county.

  The August Republican and Democratic primaries are a continuation of a lengthy election cycle that began last year with the presidential debates and nominating process that is winding down and will likely pit Republican Mitt Romney against President Barack Obama in November.
  Not appearing on the August ballot are third-party candidates — Libertarian, U.S. Taxpayers, Green Party and Natural Law Party — who nominate candidates for November by convention or caucus, and independent candidates, who have different filing deadlines for November.
  Against the backdrop of a presidential election year are new political boundaries that take effect in January for congressional, state House, state Senate, county commission and some city districts.
  Here's a rundown of the contested races and local tax questions on the Aug. 7 ballot:

  On the Aug. 7 primary ballot statewide are former U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra from Holland, Clark Durant from Grosse Pointe Farms, Randy Hekman from Grand Rapids, and Gary Glenn from Midland.
