2020 Kansas Democratic Presidential Primary

May 2

Read the Proposed Kansas Delegate Selection Plan for the 2020 Democratic National Convention

The Kansas Democratic Party, in accordance with the rules and guidelines set forth by the Democratic National Committee, has proposed the most significant changes to Kansas’ Democratic presidential nominating process in decades. These proposed changes will encourage greater participation, provide wider accessibility for voters, and be conducted in an open and transparent manner.

Here is a brief outline of the 2020 Kansas Democratic Presidential Party-Run Primary proposal we have submitted to the Democratic National Committee for initial review:

A mailing explaining how to vote by advance ballot or in-person will be sent to every registered Democrat in Kansas on March 9, 2020. The same day, registered Democrats can begin requesting ballots via the state party website or by contacting the Topeka office until 5:00 p.m. on April 17. Starting March 30, the KDP will mail requested advance ballots with a postmark deadline of April 24.

Primary Day in-person voting centers will open in all 40 state Senate districts from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on May 2. Exact locations will be detailed in the March 9 mailing. Election results for the presidential primary will be released at 1:00 p.m. on May 3. This delay is meant to ensure each ballot either returned by mail or cast at an in-person voting center will be counted.

Voters will rank every presidential candidate on their ballots. If a candidate receives fewer than a minimum 15 percent of all first-choice votes, votes will be reallocated to the next preferred viable candidate until all candidate remaining receive at least 15 percent.

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