Michigan primary election information available online

MARQUETTE – Voters statewide will head to the polls Tuesday to decide primary races and ballot questions.

The Michigan Secretary of State’s Office has a good deal of election details at its Michigan Voter Information Center located online at: www.michigan.gov/vote.

At the site voters can view their sample ballot and find their polling location. The site also offers contact information for a voter’s local clerk’s office.

Voters can track the status of their absentee ballot if they are voting absentee. The absentee ballot tracking feature notes when an application for an absentee ballot has been received by the local clerk’s office, when the ballot was sent and when the clerk received the returned ballot.

Because this is a primary, voters are reminded that they can only cast votes within one party. Casting votes in a partisan primary for both Republican and Democratic candidates invalidates the partisan section of the primary ballot. Non-partisan offices and proposals will appear after the partisan section of the ballot.

Polls are open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day.
