The Leelanau Enterprise reports that a record or near record voter turnout is expected for the Tuesday, November 7th election. While Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land has estimated that 3.4 million Michiganders will turn out for the election (about 45% of the stateâ€™s 7.1 million registered voters), a much higher percentage of Leelanau’s 18,149 county voters are registered to cast ballots.
