What's on the Ballot?

  • Each major political party will have a separate ballot with their list of candidates for the office of President of the United States. Parties may also choose to have an "uncomitted" and/or write-in option available.
  • Sample ballots will be posted in early January as soon as they are available (parties have until December 31 to submit their list of candidates to the Secretary of State). 

Can I Vote Early?

What is the Presidential Nomination Primary Election?

  • Legislation was passed in 2016 to establish a presidential nomination primary to award delegates as part of each major political party's presidential nomination process.
  • Only major political parties are eligible to participate in the presidential primary. Each party will have a separate ballot, and voter's must indicate which party's ballot they wish to receive and sign an oath affirming "I am in general agreement with the principles of the party for whose candidate I intend to vote."
  • Your party selection is considered private data. However, each voter's party selection is recorded and shared with the chairs of each major political party.
  • Precinct caucuses will still be held on February 25, 2020 to develop policy positions to shape the party platform.
