TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Today is Primary Day in Florida.

Major parties nominees could be decided this Tuesday, including the race for governor and Tallahassee mayor.

WTXL ABC's Jada Williams is kicking off our election coverage at the Leon County Courthouse, where the polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

oters will decide on when they go to vote?

Voters will see ballots broken down into three parts: Democrat, Republican and no Party affiliation.

Two of the biggest races voters will vote on are the gubernatorial race and the mayoral race.

Two locals are hoping to become the Democratic candidate for governor: Mayor Andrew Gillum and Gwen Graham.

On the Republican ticket, Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam is in the running.

The mayor's race has been hotly contested with both people previously involved in politics and newcomers vying for the position.

Supervisor of Elections Mark Early says that despite juggling multiple candidates in multiple races, his staff has done a great job this election cycle.

"Elections, like they say, is like a dance," he said. "There's many, many different things going on. But I think we've got a great staff and division here. We know what we're doing. We've done a very good job this year and I'm proud of my staff."
