Aug. 7 primary: Polls close at 8 p.m.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The polls for today's primary election will remain open until 8 p.m.

The big races are the gubernatorial primaries, but voters are also choosing the candidates whose names will appear on the November ballot for several legislative seats.

You can look up your sample ballot and confirm your polling location on the Michigan Secretary of State's website. You don’t need to show photo identification to vote, but it does speed up the process, so the SOS advises you bring it.

Remember that in primaries, you have to stick to a single party in partisan races — you can't cross columns to select candidates from multiple parties.
