The primary elections are held by the political parties to select each party’s nominee for the general election. In the primary, there are separate party ballots and voters must choose between the ballot with Democrats running against other Democrats or the one on which Republicans run against other Republicans. Since the primary election is part of the nominating process for a political party, you are required to choose one political party’s primary over another because you cannot participate in the nomination of both parties’ candidates. However, in the general election, you may split your ticket and vote for candidates from each political party.
