Facts & StatsA Primary is an election held by separate states to assist the party in deciding which candidate to support on Election Day. Many states only allow members of a specific party to take place in voting in the Primaries (i.e., only registered Republicans would be able to vote in a Republican primary), but in some states voting is open to all registered voters (meaning a Democrat or an Independent could vote in a Republican primary).
