Last Tuesday's Primary saw a record turnout for an August Primary Election with 2.5 million voters, up from the previous 2.2 million in the Aug. 2018 Primary Election. Of this years ballots cast, about two-thirds of voters used an absentee ballot, (1.6 million) another record.
Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson says the state anticipates record voter turnout in the upcoming Presidential Election in November.
According to Benson, the state expects at least 2.4 million people will vote by mail in the November election. Of the 7.7 million registered voters in Michigan, about 5 million are expected to participate in the upcoming election, officials said.
