    Election Day: Few Voters Expected To Weigh In On Detroit Race

    DETROIT (AP) — Incumbent Mike Duggan is being challenged by state Sen. Coleman Young II for Detroit mayor in an election in which fewer than a fifth of the city’s 470,000 registered voters are expected at the polls.

    Only 13 to 18 percent voter turnout is expected for Tuesday’s general election, according to city elections officials.

    Mike Duggan, who was first elected months after a state-appointed manager filed for Detroit’s historic bankruptcy, is seeking a second four-year term against Young whose iconic father, Coleman A. Young, was Detroit’s first black mayor.
