Party Primary


What is a Party Primary?

The Democratic and Republican parties can choose their candidates by either a primary election or by a party meeting.  If a party uses a primary for the November election, it will be held on the second Tuesday in June.

If you are a registered voter, you can vote in any primary election.  If both parties are holding a primary in your election district, you can vote in only one party's primary.  You must choose either the Democratic or Republican primary.  The next primaries will be June 13, 2017.
