Billboards along 8 Mile Road in Detroit, such as this one at Kelly Road, display the slogan 'Your Vote is Your Voice' and announce the date of the general election as September 2nd rather than the actual November 5th date.

International Outdoor, which manages the billboards has said that the billboards will be corrected on Tuesday, unless it is raining.
