The Democratic Party permits unaffiliated voters to vote in the primary.[1] The Republican Party grants registered voters the right to vote.[1] Non-affiliated electors can choose to ally with a party on election day,[1] however, they will be obligated to that party at the next election.[1] The primaries were held on May 17.
