Polling places are busy on this primary election day in Michigan, with some locations reportedly running out of ballots.
Multiple callers at Plainfield Township precinct No. 3 — the Ambrose Ridge Apartments — told WZZM that Democratic ballots have run out.
There was some sort of miscommunication between the Kent County clerk’s office and this particular precinct, reports WZZM’s David Bailey. Democratic ballots destined for this precinct were sent to another by mistake, an official said.
They were without ballots for about two hours, and people were turned away.
