Southwest Michigan voters are making their choice between Fred Upton and Kim Clark to represent Michigan's District Six in the United States House of Representatives.

State Election Officials in Michigan predict that 45 percent of the voting-age population will vote.

Remember the polls here are open until 8 p.m.

That means there's still plenty of time to cast your ballot.

One of the biggest races in Southwest Michigan is between incumbent Fred Upton and Democrat Kim Clark who are competing to be Michigan's 6th District Congressman.

Upton has spent the past 20 years representing the 6th district in the US House of Representatives.

And challenger, Kim Clark, a businessman and community leader from Three Oaks, hopes to unseat him on Election Day.

NewsCenter 16 caught up with both candidates as they voted this

morning, Kim Clark at the fire station in Three Oaks, and Fred Upton at the library in St. Joseph.

"I've always put policy over politics. I'm not a rubber stamp for anybody. Whether it's supporting the minimum wage, Amtrak and Stem Cell research. My vote has been there," Clark said.

"I really think this is an election about the Iraq War and the Iraq War Policy,” Upton stated.

Michigan is expecting a turnout of about 3.4 million people.

Voters here are also choosing an Attorney General and Secretary of State.
