While Dearborn voters mostly mirrored statewide trends in turning down proposals on the Nov. 6 ballot, there were two major differences: Dearborn voters passed Proposals 1 and 2 with a 50.58 and 52.34 percent majority, respectively.
Statewide, voters turned down all six proposals.
One of the most controversial government issues of the past year, Proposal 1 centered on the future of the state's emergency manager law. Passed as Public Act 4 in 2011, the law allowed the state to appoint an official to oversee a community deemed to be in significant financial trouble. The law allowed that official to dissolve any elected officials and union agreements.
Proposal 1 was supported by Republican Gov. Rick Snyder, and opposed by unions.
Proposal 2 would have written collective bargaining for unions into the Michigan constitution, effectively ending the back-and-forth battle between organized labor and the state's GOP legislators.
It was supported by many union groups, including the Dearborn Firefighters.
