Who Gets to Vote First?

Lots of contention about who gets to have the first primary. Michigan and Florida moved their primaries earlier than Iowa and New Hampshire, but are getting a lot of flack. The Democratic National Convention is threatening not to seat their delegates at the convention, meaning their votes wouldn't count, and the major candidates have agreed not to campaign in those states unless the primaries are moved back into their previous order on the primary calendar.

Hillary, ever the opportunist, waited until all the other major candidates had vowed not to go to Michigan or Florida before she agreed to pass those states by.
'A number of other states are undergoing a process,' Elleithee [Clinton spokesperson] said. 'And we have repeatedly said we are going to let that process play out.'
