2020 Kansas Presidential Primary
The Kansas Democratic Party is switching to a primary this year and using Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) to determine delegate distribution among the Presidential Democratic candidates. On September 6, 2019, the Republican Party announced that there will not be a Republican primary this year. To be eligible to participate in the Democratic Kansas Presidential Primary, voters must be registered as a Democrat. Voters can change their party affiliation online or on the day of the primary. Kansans who are already registered will begin receiving their ballots with prepaid postage envelopes on March 30th.
Because the primary will be in May and is in full compliance with the Democratic National Committee, Kansas was awarded 8 additional delegates for a total of 47 delegates. Holding a primary allows for same day registration on the day of the primary, which will be Saturday, May 2, 2020.
