Getting Ballot Boxes Ready for Election Day

About 80% of people in Michigan registered to vote are expected to cast ballots next week.

Marquette city officials are trying to get themselves ready.

The ballot boxes are rolled out and ready for next Tuesday.

The city’s elections board met this afternoon to conduct public accuracy tests on the boxes, and they passed with flying colors.

Since this is a presidential election year, things can get chaotic, so the city is trying to make sure things go smoothly at the polls.

City clerk Dave Bleau is encouraging everyone of age to get out and vote.
