Tuesday, Nov. 6 is a very important day.

On Tuesday, residents across the state of Michigan will head to the polls to make very important decisions that will affect the future of our state. Decisions such as whether Bill Schuette or Gretchen Whitmer should be Michigan's next governor, or whether incumbent Debbie Stabenow will be able to hold her seat in U.S. Senate against newcomer John James.

Voters will also have the opportunity to make more sexy decisions through the state's three proposals which cover marijuana legalization, nonpartisan redistricting, and expanded voting access.

After making all of those tough choices, what better way to celebrate exercising your civil duties than with a party?

On Tuesday evening, "Dance for Democracy" will take over Detroit's Marble Bar, giving voters a physical and musical release from the day's anxieties. The event, which is free to voters who can prove they attended the polls with an "I voted" sticker, will give attendees a place to watch the election results roll in while enjoying musical performances from Shigeto's Live Ensemble, Charles Trees, Mike Medow, and DJ Beige.

In the spirit of selflessness, Marble Bar will also be donating a portion of bar sales to Detroit-based nonprofit, Vote Detroit.

Dance for Democracy begins at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 6 at Marble Bar; 1501 Holden St., Detroit;; Free with voter sticker.
