Last Michigan Polls Close, Vote Counting Continues


LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The polls have closed across Michigan with the arrival of 8 p.m. in the Central Time Zone portion of the western Upper Peninsula.

Michigan's polls opened Tuesday at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. All but a slice of western upper Michigan is in the Eastern Time Zone.

People in line at closing time are allowed to vote.

Now, election workers are scrambling to tabulate the results after the heavy turnout.

Michiganians gave their electoral votes to President Barack Obama and re-elected Democratic U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow.

They also voted on statewide ballot issues dealing with collective bargaining rights, a cap on new taxes, renewable energy mandates, a curb on new international bridges, and emergency financial managers.
