In 2016, Michigan will hold primary rather than a caucus.

Party expected to switch to primary after holding caucuses in 3 of last 4 presidential election years.

Many of the state's 152 Democratic delegates will be awarded proportionally depending on how candidates fare in each congressional district. Those receiving less than 15 percent would win no delegates.


I wonder how a sate wide vote will change the race for delegates? Just from my experience, caucuses rely on much more of a ground game and an individual candidates state organization than caucuses.

Will Sanders have to register as a Democrat to run in N.H.? Probably

Will Sanders have to register as a Democrat to run in N.H.? Probably
But a few days later, neither Sanders nor the state’s Democratic Party seem too worried about that obstacle. Asked yesterday morning whether he’s given any thought as to how to deal with New Hampshire’s rules, Sanders didn’t explicitly say he would register as a Democrat when asked – but he said, confidently, “We’re going to fulfill all of the rules.”

“I made the decision that the best way to be effective as a campaign, the best way to win is to do it through the Democratic primary process,” Sanders said, before leaving a house party that attracted close to 100 supporters in Manchester. “We will meet all of the requirements of all of the states, including New Hampshire. We will fulfill all of the requirements.”

When a reporter asked again, to clarify whether he would register as a Democrat, Sanders responded, “We’ll do what we have to do.”

“We’re going to be on the ballot in 50 states,” Sanders added. “You don’t win unless you do that.”

This should lay to rest any concern that Sanders will be locked out of running in some states.
