Primary and Caucus
Primary elections are one means by which a political party nominates candidates for the next general election.
The main difference between a caucus and a primary is that a caucus involves face-to-face interaction between voters, where voters can try to persuade one another to vote for (or against) a certain candidate.
In municipal elections, registered voters elect members of their local government,
such as mayors, council people, township supervisors and district judges.

A special election is held when someone who is already in office can no longer serve and must be replaced.
