2024 Statewide Primary Calendar

This calendar reflects the date of each state's 2024 primary election for offices other than president.

While we do note here where the date is the same, see the 2024 Presidential Election Calendar for the complete schedule.

For offices other than president, 46 states hold traditional single party contests. In nine of those states, some races may require a runoff election to be decided. A tenth state, Maine, uses a ranked choice voting tabulation, where necessary. Nominated candidates meet in the November 5 general election.

In the four remaining states, all candidates from all parties appear on a single ballot. The top two finishers in California and Washington advance to the general election, while in Alaska the top four advance. Louisiana has a hybrid system, with no nominees determined prior to a November 5 all-party primary. A candidate can win an election that day by getting a majority of the vote, otherwise there is a top two runoff.

As each primary is held, click or tap the state name for live election results.

This includes elections for U.S. House, as well as U.S. Senate and governor, where applicable. It will also include primaries for legislature in most states. Primaries for municipal elections (e.g., mayor) and special elections may occur on other dates and are not reflected on this calendar. Primary calendar data is from NCSL and 270toWin research.
1 Presidential primaries are held on the same date.

Runoff Election: Some states require a runoff between the top two finishers in a primary election where no candidate achieves a required threshold. There are no runoffs in presidential primaries.
2 AL, AR, GA, MS, OK, SC, TX: A majority of the vote. GA rule also applies to general election.
3 North Carolina: 30% of the vote and only if requested by 2nd place finisher.
4 South Dakota: More than 35% of the vote. Applies to congressional and gubernatorial primaries only.
5 Louisiana: A majority of the vote. Where a runoff is not needed, the winner of the all-party primary is elected.

6 Ranked Choice Voting is used in Maine primaries. Voters rank candidates on the ballot in order of preference. If no candidate receives a majority of the vote, an automated tabulation is conducted - using these preferences - to determine a majority winner. It is sometimes called an instant runoff in that a separate election is not needed. See this video for a fuller explanation.
