Local elections and midterms are often a bit odd. Effectively today's primary here was the "real" election for most (all?) of the positions. My area is very heavily Democratic, to the point that Republicans here often put their names on the Democratic primary ballots. I'm not sure if this is an attempt to confuse or a serious way for them to have their ideas/positions heard and vetted. I also don't know if it makes much difference since Democrats are always outside the polling location handing out lists of actual Democrats in the primary.
