FLINT, Mich. - Some voters are saying that a local polling location in Flint wasn't ready when they arrived to vote Tuesday morning.

It happened at Potter Elementary in Flint.

We talked to several voters that say they arrived at 7 a.m. and had to wait for the staff to open the doors.

Local resident Chris Zuwala claims his brother was told to grab some coffee and come back later.

He says he's upset because these elections already face low voter turnout.

"People take time out of their day to vote that's great but when we are pushing people that don't vote to come out and vote, and if they come up here to go vote before they go to work and they are turned away from the polls because they are not ready there is something wrong. this is bad for us and we are beating our head against the wall,” said Zuwala.

We reached out to City Clerk Inez Brown who says that the location is accordance with the state and there was no wrong doing.
