2020 Primary Election
In even-numbered years a primary election is held to nominate a candidate to represent a political party in the general election held later in the same year. Registered voters may vote only in the primary election of their declared party.
Unaffiliated voters may choose to participate in any recognized party’s partisan primary, or they may request a non-partisan ballot. However, the voter must choose only one party’s primary. Participating in a partisan primary will not affect your status as an unaffiliated voter. The partisan choice does carry over to a second primary if one is called. If you request a non-partisan ballot, you will only vote for those contests that are non-partisan (i.e. judicial contests, referenda, etc.). The Constitution and Green parties do not permit unaffiliated voters to vote in their primaries.
