Last Minute 2014 Michigan Primary Election Primer [Video]

By Jo Anne Paul | WJIM-AM

For the first time in what is believed to be Michigan history, there is no primary challenge in the same year for the gubernatorial and U.S. Senate race.

And with the lack of big name candidates at the top of the ticket, there is concern the number of voters heading to the polls will hardly offset the cost of holding the elections.

Despite the significance of the outcome of the primary on Tuesday, fewer than one million voters in Michigan are likely to cast ballots, The Detroit News reported today. That would be even less than the all-time low numbers recorded in August 1990.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST Tuesday.
