A primary election is an election in which voters in a jurisdiction select candidates for a subsequent election (nominating primary). In other words, primary elections are generally when each political party decides its nominee for the upcoming general election. Primaries are common in the United States, where they trace their origin to the progressive movement. Elsewhere in the world, the nomination of candidates is usually the responsibility of political parties and does not make use of the public apparatus for holding elections.

A general election is an election in which all or most members of a given political body are up for election. The term is usually used to refer to elections held for a nation's primary legislative body, as distinguished from by-elections and local elections.

A City Election is an election that occurs bi-annually on odd number years in November. A City election is used to elect the Mayor and Council Members for specific cities in Webster County.

A School Election is an election held annually in September. School Elections are used to elect school board members for specific school districts located in and adjacent to Webster County.

A Special Election is any election that is not a regular scheduled election called for by any taxing authority in Webster County for specific purposes as defined by the Code of Iowa.
