LIVE CHAT: Michigan Primary 2012

Watch and participate in a live chat throughout the day and night as voters head to the polls to vote on Republican presidential candidates and local issues.

Today is primary day in Michigan, when voters mark their ballots with their choice for who should run for president of the United States in November. 

Republican hopefuls Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum headed into Tuesday's primary race neck and neck, trailed by several other candidates on the GOP ticket. President Barack Obama is the sole candidate on the Democrats' ballot. The Dems will caucus for their candidate May 5.

There are some local issues on the ballots, too, such as a school bond proposal in Ferndale and a millage request in Clawson.

We want to know how you voted and why and what's going on at the polls, campaign headquarters and at results-watching parties. Give us your thoughts, talk amongst yourselves, share some photos in the attached live chat.

Jump in – the water is fine.

I am a resident of California who is watching Michigan closely today. I really believe that Mitt Romney is our only hope for a smaller government and a balanced budget. He probably won't even take a salary! He'll just turn things around and then go home to his family. That's what he does. He isn't about keeping power in Washington. Don't fall for the Obama and Santorum gimics today. Please. The rest of us are counting on you!

Just voted in the primary an hour ago. Ron Paul 2012! Ron Paul is all about the Constitution! Every other candidate craps on it!

Matt - the surprise for me this Primary was how much grassroots materials I received from Ron Paul supporters, and a lot of signs up around the neighborhoods.

Right, because the President's salary ($400,000, or slightly more than Willard "Mitt" Romney made from speeches in 2010) is why we have a budget deficit.
