The August primary is just over a month away and local election officials say now is the time to be thinking about it. Voters need to figure out where their polling location is and learn what will be on the ballot. The partisan primary determines who will be running in November – including statewide races for governor and U-S Senate. During a partisan primary, you are only allowed to vote for candidates of one political party. You choose the party. Voters are reminded to check because their polling location may have changed since the last time they cast a ballot.
