Registered voters in Union County and across the state will be heading to precincts Tuesday to cast their vote for candidates during the Primary Election.

I spoke with Union County Clerk Trey Peak this morning regarding the Primary Election and he explained the voting process for Democrats and Republicans.

He also gave a rundown of the candidates you will see on the Democrat ballot…

Due to the Republican Caucus held in March, no presidential candidates will be on the ballot. If you’re a Republican, Peak said you will be voting for the following candidates:

Secretary of State Allison Lundergan-Grimes is predicting a 20 percent voter turnout across the state, but Peak is hoping for a higher turnout in Union County.

According to Peak, there are no precinct changes since the previous election. Precincts in Union County will be open Tuesday from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
