What is a Presidential Nomination Primary (PNP)?
The purpose of the PNP is for MN voters to vote for a presidential candidate who they wish for their party to nominate as the candidate on the November State General Election ballot. The chair of each major party will submit a list of candidates for the party’s ballot no later than January 2, 2024.
When does the PNP take place?
Election Day is March 5, 2024. Isle Harbor Township 3622 380th St., Wahkon MN. Polls are open from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm. If not in Isle Harbor Township, find your polling place for the PNP on the Polling Place Finder.
How does voting work?
- Voters must declare their major political party preference.
There are separate ballots for each major political party and a voter will be given a Presidential Nomination Primary ballot with only candidates for their selected party.
- Only one office (president) will be listed on the ballot, and it will include only one name (not a president/vice president team).
- A voter’s choice of major political party will not be public information, except that it will be made available to election officials and to the chair of the major political party that you select.
