The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization that does not endorse parties or candidates. The Primary Election is September 1, 2020. Members of political parties (Republican, Democratic, Green-
Rainbow, Libertarian) may vote only in their own party's primary. Unenrolled voters (often referred to as "Independents") and members of political designations or minor parties may vote in the party primary of their choice. You may change your party enrollment prior to the voter registration deadline (August 22).
