State law requires that a political party’s nominees in the general election for offices of state and county government and the United States Congress be nominated by primary election if the party’s nominee for governor in the most recent gubernatiorial general election received 20 percent or more of the total number of votes received by all candidates for governor in the election.

Other parties’ candidates may also appear on the ballot, however, their candidate selections are made through a convention process. Individuals with no party affiliation can also file as independent candidates.
