It’s the Tuesday before Super Tuesday, so it’s a bit quieter on the presidential primary front than it will be on March 5th. But there is one state hosting a primary today: Michigan. The Great Lakes State is holding both Democrat and Republican primaries today, but there’s one twist: 

On Tuesday, Michigan will hold a primary election open to all registered voters. Then, on Saturday, March 2, the Michigan Republican Party will hold a caucus convention.

But unlike Nevada — which had a similar situation for Republicans earlier this month — both contests will count toward the GOP nomination for president.

The Republican primary will award 16 delegates, while the caucus convention will allocate another 39.

So Tuesday’s vote won’t be the ultimate say in who earns the GOP delegates. The 16 delegates from the primary will be awarded proportionally. The 39 delegates from the caucus convention will be awarded via a “winner take most” approach. (It’s convoluted — and that’s compounded by the ongoing war over who is actually in charge of the state’s GOP.)

For the Dems, the intrigue lies with the protest effort aimed at sending a message to President Joe Biden over his (quasi) pro-Israel stance.

Polls close at 8:00 pm local time — which means 8:00 pm Eastern for most of the state, but 9:00 pm Eastern for that sliver of the Upper Penninsula on Central time.
