Something so simple as casting a vote can have some road obstacles and Mlive.com did a great article updating us on some of the rules for voting.

Here Are The Top 5 Things You Need To Know...

  1. The Polls are open from 7 am to 8 pm. As long as you are in line by 8 pm you will be allowed to vote.

  3. You can vote a straight-ticket in this election.

Have a great day and enjoy your right as an American to let your voice be heard!
