*This will be the first year of a binding Presidential Nomination Primary.  Per Minnesota State Statute 207A.12, 'The voter must request the ballot of the party for whose candidate the individual wishes to vote' and ' the election judge must record in the polling place roster the name of the political party whose ballot the voter requested'. A voter’s choice of party ballot will be recorded and is private data. However, a list of who voted in a presidential nomination primary and the political party each voter selected will be provided to the chair of each major political party. How a voter voted on the ballot will be secret. Precinct caucuses will be held on February 25, 2020.
