Cascade Charter Township is making it easier for voters to cast their ballots in the next election.

The clerk renumbered the 10 precincts in order of location to help prevent confusion. Click here for a map.

“In previous elections, we know residents have had to drive past polling locations to get to the one they've been assigned,” said Township Clerk Sue Slater in a press release. “We intentionally reassigned voters so they can cast their ballots at the closest and most convenient polling location.

"Residents will drive a much shorter distance to make sure their voice is heard."
