Presidential Nomination Primary

Elections Logo 300

In 2016, legislation was passed establishing a presidential nomination primary, which will take place Tuesday, March 3, 2020. Only major parties will participate and each major party will have a separate ballot. Candidates were submitted by the party chairs and no other races will appear.

Registered voters will be able to vote at their polling place on March 3 or by absentee ballot beginning January 17. A voter must request their party ballot choice and while their choice will be recorded and provided to the chairs of each major political party the data will not be made public. Counties and municipalities will be reimbursed by the state for the primary costs. Precinct caucuses and local and state nominating conventions will still take place to conduct other party business.

In person absentee voting is available at Blaine City Hall during normal business hours. Additional early voting opportunities include the Saturday before Election Day from 10AM-3PM at Blaine City Hall.
