Votes must be partisan and voters can only choose all Democrat or all Republican candidates to move on to the Nov. 8 ballot where many will face challengers from the opposing party. The Primary Election determines who will be on the ballot in November.
Voters cannot choose candidates from each party but must cast votes for candidates all from the same party. Any cross-party voting will spoil the ballot and the vote will not be counted, local election clerks cautioned. Voters should have a photo identification with them, if possible.
