1.7M Michigan Voters Expected To Cast Ballots 7-28-2010

An estimated 1.7 million voters are expected to turn out at the polls for Michigan’s primary elections.
Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land said the number was reached by using past primary turnouts, absent voter activity and information provided by local officials.
Currently there are 7,244,356 residents who are registered and eligible to vote. This compares to the 2008 primary election, in which there were 7,243,261 registered voters.
In that election, 1.36 million voters cast ballots, reflecting 19 percent of Michigan’s 7.2 million registered voters.
Special Section: Michigan's Race For Governor
The largest turnout in a gubernatorial year primary came in 1982, when 24.4 percent of the voting age population cast ballots.
Land reminds voters that this is a primary election, therefore ballots must be cast under one political party.
Casting votes in a partisan primary for both Republican and Democratic candidates invalidates the partisan section of the primary ballot. Nonpartisan offices and proposals will appear after the partisan section of the ballot.
Residents can view a copy of their sample ballot, find their polling place and locate their local clerk at www.Michigan.gov/vote
The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. and will be busiest before and after work.
Count on WNEM TV5 and WNEM.com to post instant election returns once the polls close.
