The midterm elections take place Tuesday, November 6 and voter turnout is expected to be high this year. People across the U.S. will vote for governors, senators, representatives, and proposals on state ballots.

Michigan voters will choose a new governor and also decide on proposals legalizing marijuana, redrawing districts (gerrymandering), and easing voting laws (same-day registration, relaxing reasons for absentee voting, etc.)

Needless to say, it will be a busy news day.

But the logistics of Election Day don’t need to be stressful. As a reminder, polls are open in Michigan from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. If you are still in line at 8 p.m., stay there. You can still vote.

The City of Detroit has a list of polling locations here for city residents. Not in Detroit or still unsure of where to vote? Enter your info at the State of Michigan site to find your polling location. You can also check any location at

If you’re still figuring out how to get to the polls, Uber and Lyft are offering free or discounted rides on November 6. Lime is also offering free scooter rides with the code “LIME2VOTE18.”

The Detroit Bus Company is also getting voters to the polls for free. Request a ride here. And if you haven’t, check out Curbed’s guide for voting in the Detroit area.
