Governor, Senate Races Go Uncontested in Primaries

A smaller ballot might lead to a low turn out in Tuesday’s primary election.

For the first time in Michigan history, Republican and Democratic primaries for both the governor and U.S. Senate in the same year are uncontested.

The low voter participation could add more uncertainty to the House and legislative races across the state.

The lowest statewide turnout for an August primary dates back to 1990. Only one million people cast a ballot vote.

This years election numbers are believed to be well below the one million mark.
