The presidential preference primary will be managed by state and local election officials. They will run like any other election except that Early Voting is only seven days instead of 14.
The presidential preference primary is ‘closed.’ This means only registered major party members (Democrats or Republicans) can participate. Voters registered as “nonpartisan” can update their registration to participate in the PPP. This includes same-day registration. Nonpartisan or minor party members are ineligible to vote in these primaries. Any minor or third-party candidate will move to the General Election if they meet all other state requirements.
