Michigan voters are casting their ballots in the state's primary election. The polls opened early Tuesday morning.
Lansing City Clerk Chris Swope predicts 15 percent of voters will show up to the polls to cast their vote in the presidential primary. Swope says that percentage is pretty low, but he does say compared to 4 years ago republican turnout is expected to be higher.
There are about 83 thousand registered voters here in Lansing and he suspects only about 12 thousand people will vote.
For this election you don't have to be registered with a particular party.
"You're not declaring yourself as a member of that party. You're simply choosing which ballot you want to vote in this election," said Chris Swope, Lansing City Clerk.
After weeks of campaign phone calls and TV ads, many voters say they're glad election day is finally here.
"We're blessed to have the opportunity to choose who are leaders are & the primary is the first phase of that selection process. We're going to have the opportunity to choose who our president is going to be and the primary is an important phase," said Gary Henderson, Lansing voter.
"No I'll be glad that all of the ads and the telephone calls and everything that have been will be coming to an end. It's been kind of harassing at night getting lots of phone calls," said Mark Stevens, Lansing voter.
The latest polls show republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum in a tight race here in Michigan.
"Well I'm planning on winning in Michigan. We were way behind 10 days ago, 15 points down, most of the polls showed its now showing me in the lead, that kind of momentum is what I need in Michigan," said Mitt Romney.
"People ask me when will the economy turn around...oh how about 11 or 12 o-clock at night when they declare me the winner in November," said Rick Santorum.
"Well I feel good when I come away from a crowd like this-- quite a few thousand people ya know, but I don't have any predictions, I know we're gonna do well and we're gonna get some delegates," said Ron Paul.
Presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich has not been campaigning in Michigan. He's focusing on southern states.
