Dateline: US Election Primary Season Begins - 2002-08-20


Voters in the southern state of Georgia and the western state of Wyoming will be going to the polls Tuesday, August 20, to vote in primary elections.

Primaries, or intra-party elections, determine the candidates of both U.S. major political parties who will oppose each other in this fall's general election.

The primaries also provide a hint as to what the electorate may be thinking just two years before the presidential contest in 2004.
