Detroiters turned out well after sunset to cast their ballots and celebrate democracy.

Regardless of the outcome of the national and local elections, Detroiters broke voting records. Here’s who The ‘Gander saw.

As time ticked down on the final hours of the 2020 historic election, Detroit voters walked and drove their ballots to to the Detroit Department of Elections. Farther west at the Northwest Activities Center, voters partied outside in the unseasonably warm Michigan evening, distancing themselves and wearing masks to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

These ‘Ganders made every moment count to cast their ballots, and they say that they expect election officials to do the same as they count each one.
