FLINT, Michigan—Mayor Sheldon Neeley is urging residents to vote and exercise their greatest right as Americans. Mayor Neeley is also condemning reported robocalls spreading fear and attempting to disenfranchise Flint voters.
Mayor Neeley issued the following statement today:
In light of disturbing reports of misleading robocalls designed to disrupt the election process, we are reminding the residents of Flint that today is Election Day and, as always, to make sure they rely on credible information. All residents must deliver their absentee ballot, cast their vote, or be in line at the polls by 8 p.m. to have their vote counted.
We had lines of voters at several Flint polling locations when they opened at 7 a.m., but things seem to be moving quickly and smoothly now. We are offering any and all support needed to City Clerk Inez Brown, who is ultimately responsible for managing today’s election, including additional security precautions to make sure polling places remain safe spaces free of threat and intimidation.
Those who want to vote, but are not yet registered can still do so at the City Clerk’s office inside City Hall. All registered voters should vote at their polling place. You can find yours at Michigan.gov/VOTE.
Remember: Vote today.
