Michigan: Jan. 15 Back On

Michigan: Jan. 15 Back On

Detroit Free Press:

Michigan’s Jan. 15 presidential primary is a go again.

Overturning a pair of lower court rulings, a majority of the state Supreme Court Wednesday morning found the law setting the primary date and granting exclusive access to voter lists from it to the Democratic and Republican parties was not unconstitutional.

The 4-3 decision, after a string of setbacks for the seemingly star-crossed election, means the vote can be held as planned.

State elections officials had said they needed to know the primary’s fate by noon today to have time to prepare and deliver absentee ballots.
