DETROIT (WWJ) -- Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will be in Michigan this weekend to rally supporters ahead of next Tuesday's primary election. 

Sanders will make the first of his four stops Friday night at the TCF Center downtown Detroit for a "Get Out The Vote" rally at 7 p.m.

The Vermont senator will then speak at the Salina Intermediate School in Dearborn at 11 a.m. Saturday, a stop which was added to his itinerary late Thursday night.

He'll finish off the weekend with a double-header on Sunday, with a 12:30 p.m. rally at Calder Plaza in downtown Grand Rapids, before coming back to southeast Michigan for a 6 p.m. rally on The Diag at the University of Michigan.

All four events are free and open to the public -- tickets are not required, but an RSVP is encouraged -- and entrance is provided on a first come, first served basis. Officials with Sanders' campaign are urging supporters to walk, bike, carpool or take public transportation to the events.

The race for the Democratic nomination has essentially dwindled to Sanders and former vice president Joe Biden after Super Tuesday.

Sanders' camp will also be canvassing several Michigan communities this week.
