What am I voting on: The contested races in today's primary are minimal. Below are a few of the major races.
In the 5th District, three Republicans are vying for the party candidacy in the general election to take on incumbent U.S. Rep. Ed Markey (D-Malden), who is uncontested on the primary ballot.
Here's a look at the Republican ballot for this seat, courtesy of the Secretary of State's office:
|FRANK JOHN ADDIVINOLA, JR.||1 Longfellow Pl., Boston|
|JEFFREY M. SEMON||1475 Massachusetts Ave., Lexington|
7 Lomas Dr., Framingham
On the state representative side of things, two Democrats are vying for their party's nomination in the 13th Middlesex District, which represents Wayland precincts 1, 2 and 3:
|THOMAS P. CONROY
|265 Old Connecticut Path, Wayland|
|STEVEN HAKAR||10 Foley Dr., Framingham|
Wayland's precinct 4 voters also have a contested representative race on the Democratic ballot in the 14th Norfolk District.
|ALICE HANLON PEISCH
|37 Pine St., Wellesley|
|JEROME B. CARR||17 Waban St., Wellesley|
In addition, four Democrats have been campaigning for their party's nomination for the Second District Governor's Council seat.
|BRIAN M. CLINTON||855 Metropolitan Ave., Boston|
|ROBERT L. JUBINVILLE||487 Adams St., Milton|
|PATRICK J. McCABE||46 Beacon St., Boston|
|BART ANDREW TIMILTY||250 Grove St., Boston|
In addition, the much talked about U.S. senator's race will take a back seat in this primary as Republicans will see only incumbent Scott Brown on their ballots and Democrats will see only challenger Elizabeth Warren.
