Voters go to the polls today to have their voice heard, and today is the day that state Rep. Paul Scott finds out his fate. Scott is facing a recall in a bitter election dispute with Michigan Education Association. There are more than 20 electoral races to be settled today, but the Paul Scott recall is making the most noise.Predictions of a higher-than-usual turnout at the polls reflect the local interest.

Also on the ballot in Flint is the election of the mayor. Incumbent Dayne Walling squares off against Darryl Buchanan in the Flint mayoral race.
