What’s on the Ballot in Tennessee

  • Federal Primary Election: Similar to a state primary, but focuses on selecting candidates for federal offices, such as the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. Like state primaries, voters affiliated with a particular political party participate in the federal primary to choose their party's nominees for federal-level positions. The winners advance to compete in the general election to represent their state at the federal level.

  • State Primary Election: A state primary election is a preliminary election held by a political party to determine its candidates for various offices such as governor, state legislators, and other state-level positions. In a state primary, voters affiliated with a particular political party cast their ballots to select the party's nominee for the general election. The winners represent their party in the general election.

  • County General Election: A county general election is specific to a county within a state. Voters within the county cast their ballots to elect officials who will represent them at the county level, such as county commissioners, sheriffs, district attorneys, and other county-level positions. It may also include local ballot measures or initiatives relevant to the county’s residents. The winners serve their constituents at the county level.
