Actually, what is Primary Day and how does it differ from Election Day which is November 4, 2019.  Well, according to Wikipedia, this is an explanation as to what Primary Day is:

primary election is the process by which voters, either the general public (open primary) or members of a political party (closed primary), can indicate their preference for a candidate in an upcoming general election or by-election, thus narrowing the field of candidates.
