In Spring 2017, a supplemental survey containing only the questions regarding election administration was sent concurrently to those city and township clerks not participating in the general MPPS, to ensure these officials had the opportunity to weigh in specifically on this topic. This supplemental city and township clerks' survey ran from April 3 to May 24, 2017. A total of 881 clerks returned valid surveys (678 township clerks and 203 city
clerks), resulting in a 58% response rate among clerks. Responses to the supplemental survey are not included in the Spring 2017 Public Use Datasets.
