Primary election day in Nebraska


Primary election day in Nebraska

This year's races are wide open and particularly important because control of state government - and the ability to craft policies that will shape our lives and govern our schools - is up for grabs.

Not sure if you are registered to vote?

Those who have not voted yet can still return their ballot by 8 a ballot drop site.

Close races are anticipated Tuesday, especially in a number of legislative districts, including key seats in the state Senate.

Pennsylvania's Primary Election is today.

There are also some statewide races of note, including three-person Democratic and Independent Party primaries for governor and a 10-way race for the GOP nomination for the Oregon's highest office as well as the three-way nonpartisan contest for labor commissioner. Registered voters are eligible to vote for all candidates regardless of party affiliation. If you are wondering where those are or have other questions, Betschart says to contact your county elections office.

Democrats have high hopes for the OR primary, being only one seat away from a three-fifths majority in both the state House and Senate. No Republicans or Independents filed to run in the primary, although one unaffiliated candidate has announced plans to join the general election fray.

And both Republicans and Democrats are watching the outcome of the gubernatorial primary as a bellwether for conservative Oregonians. We urge you to keep democracy alive by voting, so please do vote in this election. Stay with us for the latest and download our free app for up-to-the-second results.
