As Michigan residents hit the polls this Election Day, thousands of Republican, Democratic and independent election clerks, staff and volunteers across the state are working hard to make sure our elections are secure, accurate and fair.
Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson joined host Stephen Henderson on Detroit Today Tuesday to help Michiganders understand more about what the state is doing to ensure access to the ballot and election integrity.

Jocelyn Benson is the Secretary of State of Michigan. She says this year the state allows nine days of early voting, which means that 5,000 people have already voted at many different municipalities.
“This is the last day of voting for our localities that are all around the state having local elections this year,” said Benson.
