A primary is an election, typically held in August, that gives voters a chance to decide which candidates will represent their political party in the November general election. Primaries can also be used in nonpartisan races to reduce the number of candidates that go on to the general election. For example, in an election to fill one office, the top two candidates from the primary will go on to the general election.
