This Election Day, many local polling locations have moved. In the map above, you can find where you’re supposed to vote based on where you live. Locate your residence on the map and see what color your ward and precinct are. Then find the polling place of the same color. That’s where you vote.
When going to vote, also remember that voters in the state of Michigan are required to present valid photo identification at the polls on Election Day in order to vote. Mcards count as a valid form of photo ID at polling locations. Also the polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. Voice Your Vote says there are two key things to remember on Election Day. First, give yourself time in case there are long lines. And second, don’t let anyone tell you that you cannot vote.
The following polling locations have changed places: In Ward 1 (again look at the map and see where you live to figure out which ward and precinct you’re in), Precinct 7 voters should go to Pierpont Commons — not Bursley Hall. Ward 2, Precinct 2 voters should go to Palmer Commons, not Markley Hall. Voters in Precincts 1 and 2 in Ward 3 should head to the Michigan League. Those voters used to go to East Quad. In Ward 4, Precinct 1, voters should go to the Michigan Union — they used to vote in South Quad.
Northwood Community Center is still the polling location for Ward 2, Precinct 1. Also, Ward 1, Precincts 1 and 2 remains in the Michigan Union and Ward 4, Precinct 3 polling is still at the Coliseum at the corner of Fifth Ave. and Hill Street.
