Here is some information for any mom who hoped to vote for one of the democratic candidates that are not going to be on our ballot.  I hope that it helps make a difficult situation a little easier.

Voter Guide On The January 15, 2008
Michigan Democratic Presidential Primary

1. Voters will vote at their regular polling places between 7 A.M. and 8 P.M.
2. Voters can vote by absentee ballot if they meet one of the requirements – out of town, age 60 or older, disability, etc.
3. The deadline to register to vote is 30 days before January 15, 2008 or December 17, 2007.
4. In order to vote at a polling place, a voter must show a photo ID or sign a statement that they do not have a photo ID with
    them. Absentee voters do not have to produce a photo ID.
5. Voters will be asked whether they want a Democratic or Republican ballot, and a record will be made of which ballot they take.
6. The voter's choice of candidate will be secret as in all public elections.
7. The Democratic ballot will have 6 choices:

    Hillary Clinton
    Christopher Dodd
    Mike Gravel
    Dennis Kucinich
    Uncommitted
    Write-in
8. A vote for "uncommitted" is a vote to send delegates to the Democratic National Convention who are not committed  
    or pledged to any candidate. Those delegates can vote for any candidate they choose at the Convention.
9. Supporters of Joe Biden, John Edwards, Barack Obama and Bill Richardson are urged to vote "uncommitted" instead of writing
    in their candidates' names because write-in votes for those candidates will not be counted.
