Description Polling Hours: 7 a.m. until 8 p.m.

The vast majority of Michigan lies in the EST zone.
Four counties in the western part of the Upper Peninsula are in the Central Time Zone.

The Sample Ballot [Link] includes Brownback, Giuliani, Huckabee, Hunter, McCain, Paul, Romney, Tancredo and Thompson.

According to The Green Papers, [Link] Michigan has been sanctioned by the RNC regarding the selection of delegates.

"On 8 November 2007, the RNC made a determination that Michigan's Tuesday 15 January 2008 caucuses violate Republican Party Rule Number 16. The rule states that the process of selecting National Convention Delegates must not begin before 5 February 2008. Michigan is sanctioned 50% of their delegation hence, the number of delegates is decreased from 60 to 30."
