Primary Election

An election in which candidates compete against members of their own party to receive the nomination for a political office. The nominee then goes on to face candidates from other parties. The rules in primary elections vary by both party and jurisdiction. In some U.S. states, for example, one needs a plurality to win the primary; in others, a plurality win leads to a run-off election between the two top contenders.
