Summary
Included in this study are the aggregate election returns for each of Michigan's more than 6,700 precincts and Absentee Voter Counting Boards for the 1978 general election. These data are essentially similar to precinct-level data obtained for previous elections and were also supplied by the Elections Division of the Michigan Department of State. For 1978, however, two separate data files have been created, one for the August 8 primary election (see MICHIGAN ELECTION RETURNS, 1978: PRECINCT-LEVEL DATA FROM THE AUGUST GENERAL ELECTION [ICPSR 7771]) and one for the November 6 general election (contained in this dataset). Offices voted upon in the general election include governor, secretary of state, attorney general, United States representative, United States senator, state senator and representative, superintendent of the state board of education, Supreme Court justice, and regents of the three major state universities, as well as 11 statewide proposals (referenda). Along with vote counts for each office (or proposal), the dataset contains information on voting method (e.g., paper ballot, automatic, shoup, or data card), as well as on the county, city or township, ward, and precinct in which votes were cast. Designations for appellate court, senatorial, congressional, and state legislative districts are also included
