The State Primary Election determines which candidates will be on the ballot in the November election. For example, five candidates from one political party might run for governor. Only one candidate can be on the ballot in November. The winner of the August primary election will represent their party on the November election ballot.

There may be two kinds of offices on your primary ballot: partisan offices and nonpartisan offices. 

Partisan offices will list a political party next to a candidate’s name on the ballot. All state and federal offices—such as U.S. representative or Minnesota senator—are partisan offices. Partisan candidates will be listed in two columns on the front side of the primary ballot. One column will list the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party candidates. The other column will list the Republican Party candidates. You can only vote for candidates from one political party. If you vote for candidates from both political parties, your votes will not count. You decide which one of the four major parties you will vote for—Minnesota does not have political party registration.

Nonpartisan offices will not list a political party next to a candidate’s name on the ballot. For example, county and judicial offices are nonpartisan. You can vote for any candidate for a nonpartisan office. The candidates who get the most votes will be on the November general election ballot.
