A three way race has also been set up for the City Council’s 3rd ward seat. Vickie Anderson and Nick Campion are challenging incumbent Bruce Snyder.

One seat on the Rochester School Board will also be on the ballot.
Incumbent Terry Throndson is facing three opponents – Nora Dooley, Jean Marvin and Matthew Halleck.

The two candidates in each race who get the most votes will move on to the general election in November.

There are some statewide races of note on the ballot as well. Republicans pick candidates for governor and U.S. Senate.  Those races will determine challengers to Gov. Mark Dayton and Sen. Al Franken, both of whom are in search of second terms after narrowly winning their first ones.

Democrats have a contested primary for state auditor that pits an incumbent against a well-known rival.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. – 8 p.m.
