The state primary elections are in just a few weeks, on June 25. While the primaries typically have a lower turnout than the general election, political analysts say this year’s primaries could have a big impact on who gets control of the state after the November election. Seven of the state’s 26 congressional seats are expected to be competitive races. 

Many of our readers are in districts with key races: the 14th and the 16th Congressional Districts.
