The petition must follow, in general form, the nominating petition form as prescribed in the Michigan Election Law (MCL 168.488), and the heading must indicate “Disagreement of Intent to Incorporate as a Charter Township.” The petition must be signed by not less than 10% of the number of electors of the township voting for township supervisor at the last election in which a supervisor was elected.
If the petition is successful, the question of incorporation will be placed on the ballot at the next general or special township election.
