      Michigan voters decide between Romney and Santorum

      Polling sites in Southeast Michigan had more workers than voters during the early afternoon on Primary Day. Election officials acknowledged that voter turnout in the morning was light but that they expected it to pick up in the late afternoon. Temperance resident Adrene Emahiser voted at the Bedford Public Library. "It was a hard decision on who to vote for but I figured come down to the precinct, my vote will count and we'll wait for the results to come in tonight," Mrs. Emahiser said.

      An intriguing aspect to today's Michigan primary is that with it being an open primary, registered Democrats can vote in the Republican contests. Republican voter Bill Zorno, who voted for Mitt Romney, has some concerns about the open primary system. "I don't think it's truly fair because it could change the outcome of the real election, this is just a primary to choose delegates to the convention, but the Democrats could change it," Mr. Zorno said.

      Polls close at 8 p.m. Romney won the Michigan primary in 2008.
