(CNN) It’s primary election day in Illinois, Colorado, New York, Oklahoma and Utah. There is also a runoff in the Mississippi and South Carolina primaries, and a special election to fill a seat in the US House in Nebraska.

Among Tuesday’s top races are a pair of Illinois primaries and two House Republican primaries in Mississippi, which feature candidates at risk of losing the nomination.

Here’s everything you need to know:

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzer, is the favorite to win the Democratic primary for a second term. Also seeking a second term is US Senator Tammy Duckworth, who has no opposition to the Democratic nomination. A crowded field of Republicans is vying to face them.

Two Illinois House incumbents will not return to Congress next year, a consequence of the state hosting two members-versus-members primaries after Prairie State lost a redistricting seat. In the Chicago-area 6th congressional district, Representatives Sean Casten and Marie Newman are facing each other for the Democratic nomination, while in the 15th district, Representatives Rodney Davis and Mary Miller are vying for the GOP nomination.

In Colorado, there are competitive Republican primaries to take on top Democrats elected across the state, including Governor Jared Polis, Secretary of State Jena Griswold and US Senator Michael Bennett in November.

There is a particular focus on the GOP primary for secretary of state, which features Mesa County Secretary Tina Peters, who has been indicted on multiple felony and misdemeanor counts following an investigation into an election security violation at her office and is barred from oversee the elections in his cabinet. County. Peters faces two other opponents in the race to take on Griswold: Pam Anderson, a former Jefferson County employee who has received support from current and former elected officials, including three former secretaries of state, and Mike O’Donnell, who founded a small non-profit organization. – business loan company.

Two Republicans are challenging the Polis: college regent Heidi Ganahl, Colorado’s only elected state Republican, and Parker’s former mayor Greg Lopez, who said he believed former President Donald Trump won the 2020 election. Republicans seeking the party’s nod to take on Bennett include state Representative Ron Hanks and businessman Joe O’Dea.

In Mississippi, Republican Representatives Michael Guest and Steven Palazzo were forced into the second round after neither won a majority vote in the first round on June 7. In the 3rd District, Guest faces off against Navy veteran Michael Cassidy, who has focused throughout the campaign on the incumbent’s vote to establish an independent commission to investigate the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol. In the 4th District, Palazzo, who is under a congressional ethics investigation over allegations of misuse of campaign funds, will face off against Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell.

New York’s redistricting process has postponed the congressional and state senate primaries to August, but New Yorkers will vote on Tuesday to decide nominees in state and state assembly elections, as well as for some local offices. The state’s US senator, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, has no opposition to the Democratic nomination and is the favorite to win a fifth term in November.

Also at Empire State, Democratic Governor Kathy Hochul is seeking a full term after being elevated to the top job when former Governor Andrew Cuomo resigned last year. She faces US Representative Tom Suozzi and New York public attorney Jumaane Williams in the primaries. On the Republican side, Representative Lee Zeldin heads a field that includes Andrew Giuliani, a former aide to Trump in the White House and son of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino.

In Oklahoma, both US Senate seats are up for a vote this year – Republican Senator James Lankford is running for a full second term and there is also a special election for the seat that Republican Senator Jim Inhofe is vacating after the end of the mandate. the year.

Inhofe endorsed Luke Holland, his former chief of staff, in the GOP primaries for his seat. Other candidates include US Representative Markwayne Mullin, former State House Speaker T.W. Shannon and former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, who was the subject of several ethical investigations during his tenure under Trump, leading to his resignation in July 2018. Former US Representative Kendra Horn has no opposition to the Democratic nomination.

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt is the favorite to win the reappointment for a second term on Tuesday over a handful of primary opponents. Oklahoma Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister, who changed her party affiliation from Republican to Democrat last fall to challenge Stitt, faces former state senator Connie Johnson for the Democratic nomination.

In Utah, US Senator Mike Lee is the favorite to win his primaries by running for a third term. Utah Democrats won’t have a federal primary on Tuesday and won’t have any Senate candidates, but they backed independent Evan McMullin.

In Nebraska’s 1st district, Republican Mike Flood and Democrat Patty Pansing Brooks, both state senators, are facing each other in the special election for the vacancy left by the resignation of Republican Representative Jeff Fortenberry, who was convicted of making false statements and lying to authorities. during an investigation of illegal campaign contributions. The two will also meet in the November general elections for the full term. Unusually, this special election will be held under the new district boundaries after redistricting after the 2020 census. Trump would have won the seat by 11 points in 2020, leaving Flood as the favorite Tuesday.
