The primary election is June 12.

For some offices, those in which only Republican or only Democratic candidates filed, the primary will be the deciding factor. The winners of those contests will have their names placed on the general election ballot as a matter of form but they will essentially be elected as of the primary.

The top two vote-getters in nonpartisan primary races will go on to the general election, unless one of the candidates receives a majority of the votes in the primary. In that case, they will be considered elected to office and will not have to appear on the general election ballot.
