2012 Primary Voting Guide 

The primary election is May 8

The top section lists races that all registered voters can cast ballots in. The bottom sections list additional contests by county. When you take this guide to the ballot box, use both the top list and the one for your county. Early voting runs April 19–May 5. The Primary Election is May 8.

The Indy does not endorse in uncontested races. For federal and state House and Senate contests, you will vote in the district according to your residency. Note that because of redistricting, you may be voting in different districts than you did previously.
