Polls open for the 2018 midterm primary elections Tuesday.

At the end of the early voting period, turnout nearly doubled that of the last midterm election four years ago, with Democrats outnumbering Republicans. After the last day of early voting Friday, Democrats had shown a 105 percent spike over 2014 numbers. On the Republican side, there had been only a 15 percent uptick.
