All over the country, Election Day is in the process.

It was an early morning for Yoopers heading out to vote in Michigan's special election. Polls opened at 7 AM, including precincts at the Chocolay Township Hall, the YMCA in Marquette, and the Nengaunee Township Community Center. Clerks say they had larger crowds in the morning, but have since had a steady flow of voters.

This election features new voting systems at the YMCA and Chocolay Township Hall, allowing community members to submit their votes electronically.

"It was too much punching going on, just, now you just, it's simple," voter, Michael Peterson said. "Very easy, very simple, straight forward."

Running for the 109th Congressional seat, after the late, John Kivela, are Democrat, Sara Cambensy, Republican, Rich Rossway, and Green Party candidate, Wade Roberts.

So far, no issues have been reported with the new machines.

Polls are open until 8 PM tonight.
