Michiganders are voting (and public officials are encouraging it)
Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that today is Election Day. Voters today will decide on a President, members of Congress, state legislators and various ballot proposals.
With our votes having so much weight, some Michigan residents posted about the day on social media.

Some notable Michigan figures also took to Twitter to discuss voting.
Michigan Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley highlighted how many people he noticed voting.
I've lived in rural Danby Township, Ionia County, since 1997. I have never seen anything like the number of people here voting today.

Other public officials, like Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, Governor Rick Snyder and University of Michigan President Mark Schlissel encouraged everyone to vote.
