Statewide elections are held by the political parties to select each party’s nominee for the General Election. If there are three or more candidates in a race, and if no one receives a majority of the votes cast, then a second Primary Election or Runoff Election is held between the two candidates who receive the highest number of votes in the first Primary. The winner of this Runoff Election will be the party nominee.
Federal elections are held for U.S. President, U.S. House of Representatives, and U.S. Senate.
Have you experienced or observed voter suppression efforts (e.g. polling place changes, voter purges, intimidation, or local practices that result in long waits to vote on Election Day)?
