Michiganders will head to the voting booths tomorrow for the state’s primary. This is when Democrats, Republicans and Libertarians will choose who they want to see represent their party in various races come November.
There could be a higher turnout this year than in the 2014 primary.
Matt Grossmann directs the Institute for Public Policy and Social Research at Michigan State University. He says there could be greater turnout among Democrats this year because of President Donald Trump.
“Democrats are quite motivated to participate this year because of the loss in 2016 and their dismay with the president’s record.”
A spokesperson for the Secretary of State says there is also a dramatic increase in absentee ballots already compared to 2014 – the last gubernatorial primary.
