Know Your Candidates 2012: Primary Election

Florida primary elections

The primary election for federal, state and local offices will be held on Aug. 14.

The only statewide primary is for the U.S. Senate. Incumbent Bill Nelson, a Democrat, faces one Democratic challenger while four Republicans are running for the GOP nomination.

Florida's primary is considered closed, meaning only registered Republicans can vote in the Republican primary and only registered Democrats can vote in the Democratic primary.



Congressional and legislative districts have shifted significantly this election cycle due to the state's once-a-decade redistricting. To find the districts you are eligible to vote in, click on your county's name:
