Another election is in the books, and you can see complete Michigan results on the Secretary of State website.  In Confusion and congestion rule Election Day, featured the photo above and writes that problems, confusion and frustration early on had some exiting without casting ballots in Metro Detroit. The Detroit News adds that problems weren’t limited to Detroit, with wait times of 2+ hours reported in Ferndale, Ann Arbor and other locations.

Regardless of what candidate won, I hope that we can all agree that lines and other barriers to casting a legitimate vote are something we should strive to overcome before the next major election.

Here’s some great photos of voting across Michigan from Michigan Radio.
