2024 Presidential Preference Election
Getting Ready for the Presidential Preference Election
Registered Republicans and Democrats will have the opportunity to vote for their party’s Presidential Nominee in the March Presidential Preference Election on March 19, 2024. This election only happens every four years when the Office of the President of the United States is on the ballot. This is considered a “closed primary” because voters not registered as Democrat or Republican may not participate. This is different than a regular Arizona Primary Election where Independent or Party Not Declared voters may choose to vote in either a Republican or Democratic Primary.
