Polls open for primary elections today

PORTLAND (WGME) -- Primary elections are being held today in a number of races.  There are two congressional races for the seat being vacated by Congressman Mike Michaud.  There are also a number of state legislature races. 

Also on the ballot in the City of Portland is a question that could change the future of city parks.  Question 1 has been a contentious issue. 

The "Yes On 1" campaign says voting for the changes would make it harder for the city to sell or redevelop parks, like Congress Square Park.  The plaza is the site of a future development plan for a new events center.

The "No On 1" camp says the parks have plenty of protection already and Question 1 will only protect Congress Square, and area they feel should be developed.

The poll are open until 8 p.m.  We will have all of the election results tonight on CBS 13 News at 11.
