DETROIT (AP/WZZM) -- Polls are open across Michigan for the state's primary election, with voters making choices including a Republican to take on Democratic U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow.
About 20 percent of Michigan's 7.33 million registered voters are expected to cast ballots Tuesday.
Pete Hoekstra of Holland has an advantage in money and name recognition over Clark Durant of Grosse Pointe as they duke it out for the GOP U.S. Senate nomination. The race also includes former Kent County Judge Randy Hekman of Grand Rapids. Gary Glenn's name appears on the ballot, but he earlier dropped out.
Voters also could change history by dropping one or both of the state's two black congressmen.
And voters in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties are voting on a millage to support the Detroit Institute of Arts.
In West Michigan, many eyes will be on the 76th District GOP primary where current representative Roy Schmidt, who switched parties at the filing deadline, faces a write-in campaign from businessman Bing Goei.
Several communities have local races as well. Polls are open until 8:00pm.
This is a primary election, so you will have to declare which party's ballot you want to vote on.
