6. I got the voting schedule today!
It was in the handout I got at the 14th District Convention today. In summary, it says:

Saturday, 3PM-6PM, we'll be voting to select candidates for:

State Board of Education
University of Michigan Board of Regents
Michigan State University Board of Trustees
Wayne State University Board of Governors

(We have to pick 2 candidates each for those.)

Sunday, 9AM-6PM, we'll be voting on the party platform and selecting candidates for:

Michigan Supreme Court Justices (2 candidates)
Secretary of State
Attorney General
Lieutenant Governor

It sounds like a ridiculous amount of time, but there will be a lot of speeches, both by candidates and people introducing candidates. That can really drag it out.
