These primaries are used by political parties to determine which candidates for legislative seats will go on the general election ballot on Nov. 3, 2020. These include legislative seats in 46 states along with U.S. senators and representatives, governors and statewide officials.
The earliest state primaries for 2020 are held March 3 and the latest in mid-September. June and August are the busiest months for state primaries.
Some states have reserved dates for a primary runoff in the event that no candidate gets the requisite percentage of votes. For details on how runoffs work in these states, visit NCSL’s Primary Runoffs webpage.
