Primary elections typically have a lower turnout, despite the fact that every voter may cast a ballot in these elections. Primary elections are important! All voters, regardless of political party affiliation are eligible to vote for nonpartisan contests. School Board, City of Palm Coast Council, County Judge, and Circuit Court Judge are all nonpartisan. Several of these races could be decided in the Primary. Even if you do not declare a party affiliation, you may still vote for candidates in the nonpartisan races. As with any election, if you choose not to vote, someone else is making the decision for you.
This Primary will be a VERY important election, so we challenge to encourage everyone you know to vote. If you usually only vote in General elections, this Primary is for you!
What's on the ballot in 2022?

You can also see their campaign finances, including donors and expenditures. Many of the candidates have a created their own campaign website, and we provide a link so you can learn more about their platforms, ideas, and backgrounds.
