That includes races from the local level all the way up through state and federal.

The primary election is particularly important in Idaho, a Republican stronghold where the winners of the GOP primary often goes on to sweep the November general election as well.

In the state House races, Democrats have no candidates on the ballot for the 6th District, 17th District or 65th District while Republican voters in those same districts only will see the name of the respective incumbent.

Back then, voters of both parties had multiple choices - billionaire Donald Trump, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and U.S. Sen.

A clutch of both Democrats and Republicans are challenging one another in the lieutenant governor primary.

Polls are open from 7 a.m.to 8 p.m., and elections officials emphasize that the redistricting decision did not change where anyone in the state will be voting. The loyalty won Barletta Trump's early support in the Senate race, as well as recorded telephone calls last weekend featuring the president backing Barletta "fully, strongly and proudly".

In the other three states holding May 15 primaries (Idaho, Nebraska, and Oregon), there is only one highly competitive House race in the offing for November: a likely rematch of the 2016 race in the Omaha-based Second District of Nebraska, in which Republican Don Bacon toppled freshman Democratic Representative Brad Ashford (though Ashford must survive a primary challenge from progressive Kara Eastman).

For the 16th Congressional District, Democrats will choose from Ron DiNicola of Erie County, Robert D. Multari of Mercer County and Christian Rieger of Butler County.

Today is primary election day across Pennsylvania, one of those two days each year when citizens can exercise the right to vote and play a role in choosing who will lead our government.

There are also some statewide races of note, including three-person Democratic and Independent Party primaries for governor and a 10-way race for the GOP nomination for the Oregon's highest office as well as the three-way nonpartisan contest for labor commissioner.

The new map is said to more evenly distribute Democratic and GOP voters in each district. Wealthy philanthropist Scott Wallace and military veteran Rachel Reddick are the leading candidates in the Democratic primary. "Voted for Tax Cuts, unlike Bob Casey, who listened to Tax Hikers Pelosi and Schumer!" He has one primary challenger. He will face Rep. Keith Rothfus (R) in November.

"I think if you ask any of the candidates, would they be happy with 35 to 40 percent turnout, I think they would be ecstatic with that", said Chris Patrick, the Lackawanna County Democratic Party chairman. Scott Wagner and attorney Laura Ellsworth.

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf is also up for re-election and will face Tuesday's GOP victor, which include state Sen.

Nebraska's Republican senator and governor are favored to keep their seats in November.

Republican Pearl Kim will run unopposed. They will find out who their Democratic opponents will be after Tuesday's primary.

In Oregon, incumbent Democratic Gov. Kate Brown has drawn a pair of primary challengers but is expected to advance to the general election. The Republicans had no seriously competitive races.

OR is among eight states where Democrats control the governorship and both houses of the state legislature.
