2020 Kansas Democratic Presidential Primary

MARCH 30, 2020 – May 2, 2020 –– MAIL-IN VOTING

With the 2020 Kansas Democratic Presidential Party-Run Primary, the Kansas Democratic Party has made the most significant changes in decades to Kansas’ Democratic presidential nominating process.

These changes will encourage greater participation, provide wider accessibility for voters, and be conducted in an open and transparent manner.

Voters will rank their top five candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination. If a candidate receives fewer than a minimum 15% of all first-choice votes, that candidate’s votes will be reallocated to the next preferred viable candidate until all candidates remaining receive at least 15%.

Because the KDP is holding the Kansas primary in May and our proposal is in full compliance with the Democratic National Committee, Kansas has been awarded a 20% bonus in delegates for a total of 45 delegates instead of the original 39. The delegates will be assigned to candidates based on the primary results, which will be released as soon as they are available.

A PARTY-RUN PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY COSTS SIGNIFICANTLY MORE THAN A CAUCUS,
BUT ANYTHING THAT INCREASES VOTER ENGAGEMENT AND IMPROVES ACCESSIBILITY IS WORTH IT
