As a lead up to the November general elections, three local towns will have primaries next week.
The June 27 primaries are only for those voters enrolled in the parties with more than one candidate vying for the ballot position in the fall.
In the Town of Bridgewater, Republicans Mary Pratt and Donald Thomas are running for the Republican line as Oneida County legislator. Both are also in a primary for the fall Conservative party line.
In Herkimer County, the Town of Columbus has two offerings on the Republican primary ballot.
Incumbent George Weiss and challenger Nathan Seamon are looking for the party line as town supervisor.
In addition, four Republicans are seeking the two Republican spots on the ballot for town council. Challengers Ryan Fagan and Richard Smith and incumbents H. Ed Reed and Gene Doremus are seeking the two spots. Two council members will be elected in the fall.
In the Town of Litchfield two Republicans are in the primary for the town clerk Republican ballot spot. Incumbent Nicole Edwards and challenger Michele Crossman are running.
