Presidential Nomination Primary

Absentee Voting Jan 17 - March 2
Pre-registration ends Feb 11
Early Voting Feb 25 - March 2
The 2020 Presidential Nomination Primary is Tuesday, March 3, 2020, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

A Presidential Nomination Primary is new for Minnesota.  Rather than selecting your nominee for U.S. President at a caucus, it will be done at the Presidential Nomination Primary on March 3, 2020. This also means the race for U.S. President will not be on the ballot at the August State Primary. Two major political parties (Democratic and Republican) will be participating in the Presidential Nomination Primary and each will have their own ballot. The only race on the ballot will be U.S. President. In order to vote, a voter will need to declare their party choice when voting absentee or at the polls on Election Day. Prior to voting, make sure you know which party your candidate belongs to.  A voter will select the party ballot of their choice from the epoll book. The receipt will list the voter's party choice and will be given to the election judge to obtain a ballot for that party only.  A voter's choice of 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 secret.  The winner of each party will be on the November General Election ballot.  Voting will be done at the polling locations, or absentee and early voting will also be available during the dates listed above at Farmington City Hall for Farmington residents.
