2012 Presidential and Congressional Primary Dates

2012 Presidential and Congressional Primary Dates

Published by Sunlight Foundation
Establishing the date for a Presidential primary, and determining the type of Presidential primary held, varies from state to state. This is due to differences in state statutes, party constitutions, party rules and regulations, party by-laws, and delegate selection plans. In some states, a caucus and/or convention may be held instead of a Presidential primary election. Other states may use a combination of both caucuses and primaries for delegate selection. This state-by-state variation should be kept in mind when examining this listing of dates for the 2012 Presidential primaries. Questions concerning a state’s primary election procedure should be addressed to the state’s Election Director. The dates listed are tentative and subject to change.

Notes:
1. In Connecticut and Utah, conventions are held by the political parties prior to the primary. In Virginia, parties maychoose to nominate by convention rather than by primary election. (In other states, such as Indiana, Kansas, Maryland,Michigan, Oregon, South Carolina, and Texas, it is possible that minor parties may schedule conventions to nominatecandidates.)
