A primary will be held Tuesday, Aug. 10, to determine the Republican candidate for probate judge for the newly formed Southbury district.

The district will take effect in January 2011, including Roxbury, Washington, Southbury, Woodbury, Watertown, Bethlehem and Oxford.

Voting in each town will be at the usual polling sites.

Southbury's current probate judge, Thomas M. Sutnik, is facing the current Woodbury probate judge, Domenic Calabrese, for the nomination.

Judge Calabrese was chosen as the Republican candidate at a convention in May.
