Primaries held in four states on Aug. 3

Ballotpedia covered primaries in Arizona, Kansas, Michigan, and Washington on Aug. 3. On the ballot were two state Senate special primaries and regular mayoral, city, and county primaries.

Democratic and Republican primaries were held for Michigan State Senate Districts 8 and 28. Both elections were called after the previous incumbents, Peter Lucido (R) and Peter MacGregor (R), were elected to county seats in the general election on Nov. 3, 2020. The general special elections for both districts will be held on Nov. 2.

Partisan primaries were held for three city council seats in Tucson, Ariz. Only Democratic candidates appeared on the ballot after no candidates filed to be on the ballot in the Republican primary. Candidates advanced to the general election on Nov. 2.

Nonpartisan primaries were held for mayors and city councils in Detroit; Seattle; Lansing, Mich.; and Topeka, Kan. Also on the ballot were nonpartisan city council primaries in Olympia, Wash. and Wichita, Kan. and county seats in King County, Wash. The primary winners are set to appear on the general election ballot on Nov. 2.
