Qualifying begins January 8 for the April 4, 2020 election. It will last through January 10.
The election is a Presidential Preference Primary, in which registered Republicans, Democrats and Independents can cast a vote for their preferred presidential candidate for their party. Only people registered in a party can cast a ballot for a candidate in that party.
Also on the ballot are the local-level party committees for the Republican and Democratic parties. Again, only people registered as a member of the party can cast a ballot for these positions.
