Dates of State Primary & convention

Delegates to national party conventions are selected through direct primary elections, state caucuses, and state conventions. However the Democratic and Republican candidates are effectively chosen by the February primaries. Winning candidates will be the ones collecting a majority of committed delegates to win their party's nomination. Most third parties select delegates to their national conventions through state conventions. There are two types of primaries, closed and open. In a closed primary, voters may vote only in the primary of their political party. In an open primary, registered voters can vote in the primary of any party, but can only vote for one of them (Republican or Democratic). Most states hold closed primaries.
