|Runoffs are required in nine states between the top two finishers in a primary election where no candidate achieves a required threshold. In Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Texas, a majority, or over 50%, is required to avoid a runoff.
In North Carolina, candidates must win the primary with at least 30% or the race goes to a second primary. In South Dakota, it is 35%, but that applies only to congressional and gubernatorial primaries.
August 27: Guam Primary
September 6: Massachusetts Primary
September 13: Delaware, New Hampshire, Rhode Island Primaries
November 8: Louisiana Primary; Special General Elections for California and Oklahoma Senate
November 8: General Election Nationwide

|Other systems: Louisiana has a hybrid system, where an all-party primary is held November 8. If one candidate does not win with a majority of the vote, then the top two candidates go to a runoff. In California and Washington, the top two winners of the all-party primary advance to the general election, and in Alaska, the top four, regardless of party affiliation, advance to the general election. Maine uses a ranked-choice voting system.|
