The ‘Gander will have your on-the-ground look at what’s happening inside Michigan’s precincts during an extraordinary election. 

MICHIGAN—We’re approaching a historic Election Day, ‘Ganders. 

In the midst of a global pandemic in an unprecedented year, Michiganders are expected to break turnout records in the 2020 vote. 

Michigan voters have been casting early ballots since September (check out some of your neighbors’ stories of voting below), and local city clerks have assembled new teams and updated machines to process ballots securely and efficiently (see exactly how they’ll do it here). 

Polls are open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Nov. 3 and we’ll have our team of journalists on the ground, bringing you live updates from precincts across the state for the full picture at just how Michiganders have come together to pull off an extraordinary election.
