The Michigan Democratic Party is changing course and allowing Democrats to vote in the Feb. 28 presidential primary and also participate in the May caucus. The change was announced Saturday. Party Chairman Mark Brewer says there's no need to have President Barack Obama's name on the primary ballot, but the secretary of state insists it must be there under Michigan law.
    

Democratic Party rules bar votes by the same person in a primary and a caucus. But Brewer says the rule won't be enforced in Michigan. Democrats will meet May 5 to support Obama and pick delegates for the national convention, which is set for September.
