What is a General Primary?
The Republican and Democratic parties use a General Primary to select the candidates who will advance to the November Election where they compete against each other and any third party or independent candidates. You can only choose to vote in one party’s primary and both party ballots also include Nonpartisan Elections.
What are Nonpartisan Elections?
The Nonpartisan General Election is used to elect State and county judges. Depending on where you live, your ballot may also show a Nonpartisan Special Election to fill a vacancy on your city council. Please be aware that voters who choose a Nonpartisan ballot, will only be able to vote on Nonpartisan races.
