(WNDU) – Michigan residents will be heading to the polls on Tuesday to vote in the state’s presidential primary election.

Here’s what you need to know if you’re planning to participate.

Michigan voters can vote in-person at their local precinct anytime from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day.

If you are in line to vote when polls close, by law you’re allowed to stay in line and still cast your vote.

You will need one of the following to identify yourself at the polls:

  • A driver license or state ID
  • A U.S. passport, a Military ID with a photo
  • Student identification with a photo from a high school college
  • Tribal identification card with photo

If you don’t have an ID, you can still vote. But you will be required to sign an affidavit to verify your identity.

The deadline to do so “online or by mail” was two weeks ago, on Feb. 12. You can, however, register to vote in-person any time before the election, and even on Election Day.

To register to vote in Michigan, an individual must:

  • Be a Michigan resident
  • Be a United States citizen
  • Be at least 16 years of age (and 18 by Election Day)
  • Not be currently serving a sentence in jail or prison

On the Democratic ballot you’ll find Joe Biden, Dean Phillips, and Marianne Wiliamson. On the GOP side, you’ll find Donald Trump, Chris Christie, Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Asa Hutchinson, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Ryan Binkley.

In addition to the presidential primaries, residents will find a handful of other proposals on their ballots:
