46,000 Internet voters in Michigan primary
More than 46,000 people voted in Michigan's Democratic caucuses via the Internet, a showing party officials called a success.
"We're pleased not only with the number, but with the security and integrity of the Internet voting system," Mark Brewer, executive chairman of the state Democratic Party, said Saturday night.
The Democratic National Committee agreed last November to let the state party offer Internet voting, and Michigan is the only state offering that option this year. Michigan Democrats also voted in person and by mail.
People had until 4 p.m. EST Saturday to vote on the Internet, though they needed to apply to vote online a week ago.
