As of midnight, only Brandon Schools results were not yet clear.
Funding for the Detroit Institute of Arts also passed in Oakland, Wayne, and Macomb Counties. The .2 mil tax helps fund free field trips and transportation for student groups and residents of those three counties get the perk of free general admission.

As of midnight the Associated Press showed Joe Biden with about 53% of the votes and Bernie Sanders with about 38%, with 83% of precincts reported.
The March 10, 2020 Primary had an extra bit of celebration to it, as student artwork was featured on the “I Voted” Stickers. The designs were from a contest to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of women’s right to vote in the United States.
