Live results, races to watch

Polling locations throughout most of Michigan close at 8 pm EST, bringing an end to the August primary election Tuesday to decide which Republican candidate will emerge from a crowded field to face Gov. Gretchen Whitmer this fall along with several hotly contested intraparty congressional and state legislative fights.

Hundreds of thousands of Michigan voters returned absentee ballots before Election Day and by Tuesday morning, more than a million absentee ballots had been received by election officials across the state, according to the Secretary of State’s office.

Those casting absentee ballots have until 8 pm Tuesday to return theirs. Polling locations serving in-person voters also close then, but those in line by 8 pm can still vote.

While voting ends at 8 pm EST the vast majority of the state, voting in the four Michigan counties in Central Time Zone — Dickinson, Gogebic, Iron and Menominee counties — is still underway for another hour.
