Crowded tickets in gubernatorial primaries, a school board member's attempt to stage a comeback and New York battleground races top the list of what to watch in the elections taking place on June 24, 2014.

Six states - Colorado, Maryland, New York, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Utah - have primaries on June 24, including a primary runoff for a South Carolina judicial election. In addition to the party primaries, Florida's 19th Congressional District will hold a special general election today to fill the seat left vacant by the resignation of Trey Radel (R) and Mississippi will hold a very contested Republican primary runoff for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Sen. Thad Cochran.

Colorado's Republican gubernatorial primary ticket is packed with eight candidates lining up to win a place on the general election ballot. On the other side of the aisle, one Democratic candidate is challenging incumbent Governor John Hickenlooper for his seat. Voters in Maryland also have a wide field to choose from as six Democratic and five Republican teams of gubernatorial and lieutenant gubernatorial candidates battle for the open seat.

In Maryland's school board elections, a former Howard County school board member is running in the primary election despite attempts by fellow board members to remove him from office in 2011. He was targeted for impeachment over accusations of misconduct and bullying, although appeals allowed him to remain in office long enough to lose his re-election bid in 2012.[1]

New York is holding its primary elections for federal seats. Five of the 26 congressional battleground districts are located in New York: Districts 1, 11, 18, 21 and 23.
