We here in Michigan take a lot of pride in where we're from. Of course, as residents of West Michigan, we think that we live in the greatest place in the midwest, but we're not in the running for this poll, so let's help Traverse City out!

Midwest Living is currently taking votes for their "Greatest Midwest Town" poll, and Traverse City is currently losing to some town in Iowa. Not acceptable. 

Traverse City, Mich. and Decorah, Iowa are currently far ahead of the rest of the competition - that's the good news. The bad news is that Decorah (where even is Decorah?) is beating Traverse City by over 2,800 votes.

So, let's help out our fellow Michiganders, shall we? I mean, Grand Rapids/West Michigan can't be voted the best at everything.
