Hillsborough election information

The primary election for federal, state and local offices will be held on Aug. 14. • Depending on the race, registered Democrats or Republicans can vote for their party's candidates for U.S. and state House, U.S. and state Senate and Hillsborough County commissioner, elections supervisor and property appraiser. • All voters can cast ballots in the four judicial races and one countywide School Board race. • Three district-based School Board seats representing specific areas of the county are also up for grabs. Only voters who live in those districts can cast ballots. • Two races will feature open primaries due to a lack of partisan opposition, meaning that all voters can cast ballots. Those races are the Hillsborough County Commission District 2 contest between Republicans Victor Crist and Sharon Calvert as well as the state House District 61 race involving Democrats Tatiana Denson and Betty Reed. • County Commission District 2 includes parts of north and east Hillsborough, while state House District 61 comprises central, north and east Tampa.
