Washtenaw County's Washtenaw Votes site has complete details about precinct locations etc.
The State of Michigan's Web Voter Information Center will spit out your personal sample ballot, if you are registered in a particular place; there doesn't seem to be an easy way to get a sample ballot for an arbitrary location.
The City of Ann Arbor has a detailed page of voting information and a voting FAQ online. There's also a complete list of all of the candidates on the Ann Arbor city election part of the ballot, with email addresses and phone numbers of the candidates.
The Ann Arbor District Library has a voting information page up.
Washtenaw County's Ballot Proofing site has exact PDF images of all of the ballots in the election for all of the wards and precincts, as they are sent to the printers - be aware that some of these files are very large (Ann Arbor ballots are 16 megabytes). Here's what they cover:
I'll link more examples as I can find them etc.
