What’s on the Ballot?


The presidential nominating primary is a process by which voters cast a ballot for their preferred presidential candidate of their preferred political party. The results of the presidential nominating primary may affect who appears on the ballot in November. This is a political party process and will be administered just like any other election but is not to be confused as a traditional election. Only the major political parties are eligible to participate in this election. Each major political party will have a separate ballot with their list of candidates for the office of President. Parties may also choose to have an “uncommitted” and/or write-in option available. Sample ballots will be posted in early January on the MN Secretary of State’s website.

What happens when I vote?

What happens when I vote in person in the PNP?

            The process is similar to the traditional election and voting experience. You will locate your polling place, sign the roster or register to vote using approved documents. However, before the election judge gives you a ballot, you must indicate what major political party’s ballot you want to vote on. You will also sign a statement: “I am in general agreement with the principles of the party for whose candidate I intend to vote.” This is the only significant difference in the presidential nominating primary from a traditional election.
