In Preparing for Primary Elections
* NOTE... Primaries may be closed (partisan), allowing only declared party members to vote, or open (nonpartisan), enabling all voters to choose which party's primary to participate in. If you're not sure, it's a good idea to make sure you're registered with the political party in whose primary election you intend on participating.
