The polls open at 7 a.m. Tuesday across the state.

Everything will close up by 8 p.m.

To vote Republican you must request a Republican ballot.

Tuesday is Michigan's Republican Presidential Primary, and every GOP candidate will be on the ballot -- even those who have dropped out. Example: Herman Cain's name will appear on your ballot.

President Barack Obama is on the Democratic ballot, but only as a procedural measure.

Several local cities in Metro Detroit will be deciding on school millages, including Center Line, Ferndale, Riverview, River Rouge and the Wayne-Westland district.

Other millages may be on your ballot as well. Voters in Plymouth Township will be deciding on a millage that could raise nearly $4 million for the township's fire department.

In Howell, voters will decide on a fire millage that could raise more than $2 million for that city's fire department.

Voters in Franklin will see a millage increase proposal for police and fire.
