Notes:

Presidential primary dates are for Republican primaries only. Dates in italics denote caucuses.

1 Connecticut, Minnesota, and Utah conduct nominating conventions prior to their primaries.

2 Georgia will also conduct a general election runoff on 12/4.

3 Kansas's filing deadline is delayed until 6/11 if redistricting is not complete by 5/10.

4 Maine's caucuses were held from 1/29 to 3/3, which include a non-binding straw poll. The results of the straw poll were made public on 2/11.

5 Nebraska incumbents must file by 2/15.

6 A federal judge has ordered New York's congressional primary moved to 6/26. New York's state and local primaries are still scheduled for 9/11.

7 North Carolina will instead hold a runoff on 6/26 for state offices only if no runoff is required for federal offices.

8 Virginia Democrats will conduct nominating conventions in the 1st, 5th, 7th, 9th, and 10th Districts.

9 Wyoming's caucuses were held from 3/6 to 3/10.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
