Every major election, the Battle Creek Chamber of Commerce conducts a mock election to give an idea of how local and state races might go.

Looking at the results, it seems like Republicans will have a better time of it on the statewide races than the local ones. The survey was conducted online, so it may not be a "scientific" reflection of the actual electorate in these races.
