Local clerks across Michigan are busy with last-minute preparations for Tuesday's election.
Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land expects about 70 percent of Michigan's 7.5 million registered voters will cast ballots.
She says turnout may approach or surpass the record set in 1960, when John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon squared off for the presidency.
State law requires only one voting station for each 300 voters. But local clerks are being urged to set up one voting station for every 80 to 100 voters.
