WHAT’S THE PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY?

In 2016, the Minnesota legislature passed legislation establishing a “presidential nomination primary” as the method to select nominees as major party presidential candidates.  The Minnesota parties must abide by the results of the presidential primary and send delegates to represent each major party’s elected nominee at each party’s national convention.  This event replaces a caucus only for the office of president.  Parties will still hold precinct caucuses and local and state nominating conventions to conduct other party business.

The parties decided the date of the presidential primary will be on Tuesday, March 3, 2020.  We expect that turnout to be high for this event, so we want all hands on deck!  This will be the first event of its kind in Minnesota since 1992, and we will be gracious for your help assisting voters as they navigate this new process.

Which brings us to….
