KDP Update on 2020 Democratic Presidential Primary Ballot
Topeka, KS – The Kansas Democratic Party is excited to announce we are printing the ballots for the 2020 Presidential Primary today, March 5, 2020. This year, the Kansas Democratic Party will administer a primary including ranked choice voting and a vote-by-mail option. As we move closer to this year’s important election, we are looking forward to stewarding an electoral process that is highly accessible for all eligible Kansans.
The Kansas Democratic Party has been in ongoing conversations with all presidential campaigns to ensure the 2020 Kansas Democratic Primary ballot most-accurately reflects the remaining field of candidates. At the request of each campaign, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer will be removed from Kansas’ primary ballot. Furthermore, the campaigns of Deval Patrick and Andrew Yang ended prior to ballot order selection and will therefore not be listed.
Advisory: if a Presidential candidate suspends their campaign after our ballots begin printing on March 5, 2020 at 9:05 AM CST, they will remain on the ballot for the primary election.
“In a competitive primary election where a candidate’s road to success continually fluctuates, we believe that ranked choice voting is an ideal process to determine Kansas’s delegate distribution at the 2020 Democratic National Convention,” said KDP Chair Vicki Hiatt. “While we recognize some Kansas voters will be disappointed that their favorite candidates have suspended their Presidential bids, we are pleased that registered voters will still be able to rank remaining candidates by their personal preference.”
This updated ballot order that will be printed and reflected on the 2020 Presidential Primary ballots is included below:
- Joseph R. Biden
- Elizabeth Warren
- Tulsi Gabbard
- Bernie Sanders
