Elections to be Held in 70 Mich. Counties Tuesday

Communities and school districts in 70 counties will be holding local elections on Tuesday.

Voters can see on the state government website www.michigan.gov/elections if there's an election in their community, or check with their county clerk.
 
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. EDT to 8 p.m. EDT on Election Day.
 
Secretary of State Ruth Johnson says the election is a "chance to be heard" on issues that affect local school districts, cities and community colleges.
 
Voters will be asked to provide a driver's license or photo identification card when they go to vote. If they don't have one or forget to bring it, they can sign a brief affidavit attesting to their identity.
 
The Michigan Information Center at www.michigan.gov/vote can tell residents if they're registered and where to vote.
