Ballots have dropped for the March 5, 2024 election!

In this primary election, we have a Republican-only election, where Republican voters will choose their nominee for President, as well as vote for members of their respective county Central Committees. To vote in these elections, you must be a registered Republican.
For State Assembly, State Senate, Congress, and U.S. Senate, all registered voters (within that district) will have the opportunity to vote for the candidate they would like to see make the top-two General Election this November. Our goal is to see a Republican make the top-two in each district.
