As absentee voters turned out in numbers weeks before the 2022 general election, many wondered how this would affect the in-person voter turnout. Election officials and precinct chairs in Ingham County, Michigan, said that their days have been slow or mild to start, but turnout was projected to be the same after all is said and done. In recent years, younger voters have been turning out in large numbers, and on Michigan State University’s campus, that was the case. Hundreds of MSU students flooded the corridors of Brody Hall pushing wait times to nearly three hours. With concerns about election safety, numerous polling officials said that the voting process is easy and they actively try to answer as many questions as possible.
