Happy Election Day, Detroit! If you haven’t already, go out and exert your privilege as a resident of the world’s greatest democracy. The polls are open until 8 p.m.

On today’s show, we run down some news about long lines and voting machine hiccups across the region. Reports of long lines are widespread.

Elsewhere, Amazon HQ2 is said to be headed to the New York City and Washington D.C. areas as a split second headquarters. That’s given critics plenty of fodder, as we discuss. Remember when Detroit and Windsor joined forces to bid on HQ2? We had a great Happy Hour episode breaking down our fair city’s failure to crack the top 20. It’s so worth a listen.

Officials from the Michigan Department of Transportation are hedging on an end date to the never-ending I-696 construction project.

An upcoming fundraiser dinner at the DIA celebrates the food and art of Italy.

And our own Shianne Nocerini gives us the lowdown on a delicious private dinner created by chef James Rigato at Mabel Gray.
