GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The Grand Rapids city clerk says he is seeing a large number of people in the last week showing up to either register to vote or to cast their absentee ballot.

As of Monday, a recent poll shows Biden leading Trump in Michigan.

Joel Hondorp says they saw more than 3,000 people at the clerk's office just last week and they expect even more people as the election draws near.

Kent County has already been listed as a pivotal county that could end up deciding who will win.

If you have not yet registered to vote, you can do it in-person a your clerk's office the day of the election.

The polls open at 7 a.m. on Tuesday and close at 8 p.m.

With a record-number of absentee ballots this year, we expect the results will likely be delayed.
