A fresh blanket of snow is greeting Michigan presidential primary voters this morning, with officials predicting a turnout of about 20 percent by the time polls close at eight tonight.

Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land estimates that a little more than 1.5 million of the state's 7.1 million registered voters will cast ballots.

She admits that the lack of an active Democrat contest probably will hurt turnout.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is the only major candidate on the ballot.

Barack Obama and John Edwards pulled their names after Michigan broke national party rules by moving up its primary date.

Republicans John McCain and Mitt Romney have been leading in pre-election polls.
