August is the state primary when we select the nominees of each political party to be represented in the November election. On the ballot will be races such as U.S. Senator, U.S. Representative, Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, State Treasurer, State Senate, State Representative, Circuit and Associate Judge and all County offices. Voters must select a party ballot in this election. A voter may not vote for a candidate of one party and a candidate of another party. A voter will receive a ballot that contains the candidates of only one political party.
November is the General Election. Candidates of all parties will appear on a voter’s ballot. Voters may vote for whom ever they choose. Voters do not have to declare a political party to the election judges.
