August Primaries

Are You Voting in August?
Why the August elections are important:
Many districts are drawn in a way that are favorable to one of the two major parties. This makes the outcome of the November election almost a foregone conclusion. Because of this, the REAL election to decide representatives happens in August.

Because voter turnout in August is historically low, a small number of people have great power to shift the outcome of elections.

How Independents vote in the primaries:
Independent voters are able to vote in the primary elections for one party. The Children’s Action Alliance has the directions posted on their website explaining how you vote.

You must request your primary election ballot by Monday, July 28
