Primary Elections are a process through which the voters of political parties decide who will represent their party on the ballot in the November General Election. As such, political parties, not the county, set the rules regarding which registered voters can participate in their primary elections. All registered voters will be eligible to participate in the November elections regardless of party affiliation.
