The deadline to register to be able to vote in the primaries is February 5th.

The primary election is March 6th which is where people will choose whether they will vote in the Democratic party or the Republican party.

The primaries will choose the candidates that will run in the November elections.

Offices to vote for include U.S representative, governor, and local level offices.

Vona Hudson says, “We often have people who say well I’m independent well then you can’t really vote in the primary unless you want to pick a party.”

Hudson says those that vote independent can wait until November where the ballot includes the green party, libertarian, write -ins and many more.
