Officials Predict Low Primary Turnout
(2008-07-30)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan's chief elections official
predicts fewer than one in five registered voters will cast ballots
in Tuesday's primary.
Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land is encouraging all eligible
voters to go to the polls, even though she estimates just 1.4
million of the state's more than 7.2 million registered voters will
take part in the election.
Land reminds voters that ballots in a partisan primary won't be
counted if they're split between Republican and Democratic
candidates. Nonpartisan offices and proposals will appear after the
partisan section of the ballot.
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. EDT.
