Poll workers across Michigan are reporting higher voter turnout than expected, said Michigan Department of State spokesperson Jake Rollow.
"We're just hearing from election workers across the state that they're pleasantly surprised by how many people are showing up to vote in person," he said.
Rollow said he still expects all ballots will be counted by 8 p.m. local time on Wednesday, which is within 24 hours of polls closing.
As of 11:30 a.m. local time today, 2,018,929 absentee ballots had been requested in Michigan, and 1,758,987 had been submitted, according to Rollow. As of 12:30 p.m. today, there were 3,666 same-day registrations across the state, he said.
