Guide to 2010 County General and State Primary Elections

Yep, it's that time again. Early voting for county general elections and state and federal primary elections starts Friday, July 16, and continues through Saturday, July 31. If you're one of those old-fashioned types who likes to vote on the actual election day, that's not until Aug. 5.
