Today, May 29, is the last day for unaffiliated voters to select a Democratic or Republican primary ballot. Those who do not select a ballot will receive both a Democratic and Republican ballot in the mail; these voters are reminded to only vote on and return one of the two ballots received. If a person votes on both the Republican and Democratic ballots, neither one will count.

This June’s primary will be the first time in state history that unaffiliated voters will be able to participate in the primary without first choosing to be a member of a particular party.
