PRIMARIES Las elecciones primarias (primaries) sirven para preseleccionar a los candidatos de los partidos demócrata (Democratic) y republicano (Republican) durante la campaña que precede a las elecciones a la presidencia de Estados Unidos. Se inician en New Hampshire y tienen lugar en 35 estados entre los meses de febrero y junio. El número de votos obtenidos por cada candidato determina el número de delegados que votarán en el congreso general (National Convention) de julio y agosto, en el que se decide el candidato definitivo de cada partido.
