Voters in Michigan will hit the polls next Tuesday for the presidential primary election

In Washtenaw County, a peer to peer network involving social media is being used to spread Hillary Clinton's message and gain support.

Suzanne Perkins is the team captain for Ann Arbor's Michigan for Hillary group.  She says that, in addition to using social media, volunteers are signing up for phone bank shifts.  

"We're doing weekend phone banking in Ann Arbor.  The students for Hillary are phone banking during the week at U of M."

Supporters are also going door to door to speak with voters.
