When You Can Vote in Your State's Primary or Caucus - AARP

When You Can Vote in Your State's Primary or Caucus
Citizens over 50 will play pivotal role in who will be on the ballot in November

Voters should remember that more than the presidency will be at stake when they go to the polls this year:

All 435 seats in the House of Representatives are up for election. Democrats control the House by a margin of 232 to 198, with one independent member and four vacancies.

Of the 100 U.S. Senate seats, 35 are up for grabs. Republicans now control the Senate, 53 to 45, with two independent senators who align with the Democrats.

Governors will be chosen in 11 states. Currently, 26 governors are Republicans and 24 are Democrats.

Thousands of state-level senators and representatives, judges and local officials will be voted in or out of office as well.

In some states, voters will be going to the nominating polls twice once for a presidential primary and once to pick candidates for other federal and state offices. For example, in New York, voters will cast ballots in the Democratic primary April 28 but vote for down-ticket nominees June 23. And even though the Iowa caucuses are first when it comes to the presidential contest, the state will have a primary for all other offices June 2.

Good one to bookmark and pass along to friends..........

2. Same here. That's when we'll almost certainly know who our nominee will be.

And may we all be behind him - or her - when that day comes. Too much is at stake this time.
