Good To Know

Note

Laws, rules, and procedures in State and local elections may differ depending on the type of election.

General Elections

General elections have the most offices and issues on the ballot and usually generate more interest and higher turnout than any other elections. Most offices on the general election ballot are partisan.

Primary and Caucus

Primary elections are one means by which a political party nominates candidates for the next general election. The main difference between a caucus and a primary is that a caucus involves face-to-face interaction between voters, where voters can try to persuade one another to vote for (or against) a certain candidate.

Municipal Elections

In municipal elections, registered voters elect members of their local government, such as mayors, council people, township supervisors and district judges.

School Elections

School elections are held to elect school board members and community college directors

Special Elections

A special election is held when someone who is already in office can no longer serve and must be replaced. All registered voters in the district can vote in a special election.
