PRIMARY ELECTION 2024
(includes all offices except the President of the United States)

Primary Election is Tuesday June 11, 2024; Early Voting is Saturday May 25 thru Friday June 7, 2024.

This election is for each political party to separately choose a single candidate to run office for office and represent their party in the General Election.  Should a party have zero candidates running, then zero candidates for that office will show up on their ballot.  Should a party have one candidate running, then no candidates will show up on their ballot as there is only one candidate running for that party and that candidate automatically advances to the General Election Ballot to represent that party.
