Tomorrow, Tuesday 8 March 2016, is Michigan's presidential primary. Both parties.

A few years ago, Michigan was worried that -- coming after Super Tuesday -- they'd become irrelevant and wanted to linejump the first in the nation Iowa/New Hampshire races. So did a lot of other states. Even suggesting they'd go as early as December. They didn't, but they did raise the ire of the parties, which subjected and then retracted sanctions against the state. Candidates skipped Michigan.

Well, we're March 8th this time and to everyone's surprise, Michigan still counts for both the Republicans and the Democrats. Even with the endless four-year campaign.

Welcome to 2016.

To me, who wins is less important than turnout. Some Democrats could go either way with Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Donald Trump may bring more Republicans to the polls. So while there are two primaries, which team will bring more voters out? And will that say anything about which way Michigan goes in November?

Dunno. But it's going to be interesting.

Michiganders -- it's going to be a lovely day. Weather will not be an excuse. Come on and vote.

If you don't, you're letting others make decisions for you. It's the primaries -- you don't have to win to make a statement.
