In 2016, the MN legislature passed a law establishing a presidential nomination primary election.
Only presidential candidates from major parties will appear on the presidential primary ballot. The presidential primary results bind the election of delegates in each party. Other candidates whose office requires a primary election will appear on the ballot for the August state primary election.
Each major party will have a separate ballot and registered voters must request the ballot of the party of their choice. If a voter refuses to select a party, they will not be able to vote in the presidential nomination primary.
A voter’s choice of party ballot will be recorded and is private data. However, a list of who voted in a presidential nomination primary and the political party each voter selected will be provided to the chair of each major political party. How a voter voted on the ballot will be confidential / secret. Absentee voting is available for this election and starts January 17, 2020.
