What is a Primary Election?

The Primary Election for nominating party nominees for the General Election is 11 weeks before the November General Election. During a primary election, political parties nominate their candidates for the General Election ballot. No one is elected in a Primary election; candidates are nominated. In order to win a political party nomination, the candidate must receive more votes than anyone else in his/her party for that race.
