VOTE: Don't forget to vote in your local election today, polls are open until 8 p.m.

(AP) - Public transit and street taxes and a library funding measure are among the issues being decided by Michigan voters.

Tuesday is an election day for some communities in the state.

Voters in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and Ypsilanti Township are voting on a public transit tax to raise nearly $4.4 million in annual funding. The Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority placed the 0.7-mill transit tax on the ballot in the three Washtenaw County communities.

Grand Rapids voters are considering a 15-year income tax to fund what's being called "vital streets." The tax wouldn't raise the current rates, but it would prevent an existing rate increase from expiring next year.

And a $21.5 million bond proposal to improve the Baldwin Public Library is going before voters in the Detroit suburb of Birmingham.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m.
