When Is the Next Primary? Dates for New Hampshire, South Carolina and More

With the Iowa caucuses underway, many voters are curious as to when the next primaries will be, and where. The New Hampshire primary, which is also termed the "first-in-the-nation primary," will be Tuesday, Feb. 9. 

The South Carolina primary takes place on two different dates, shortly after the New Hampshire primary. The Republican primary date is Feb. 20; the Democratic primary is Feb. 27. The South Carolina primary has been termed the "first-in-the-South" primary, as it is the first primary to occur in the Southern U.S. South Carolina has maintained this status since 1980.
