Advance voting under way for presidential primary

Advance voting is now under way for the March 19 presidential preference primary election, according to the Jackson County Clerk’s Office.

Advance voting began Monday at the clerk’s office, which is located on the second floor of the Courthouse. Anyone can vote in advance at the clerk’s office from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Advance voting will end at noon on Monday, March 18.

Advance voting will also be available to all voters from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, March 16, at the meeting room on the first floor of the Courthouse, it was reported.

Instead of holding a caucus to select a presidential candidate for each political party, a presidential preference primary election is being held in Kansas. 

In a “preference” primary, vote totals are used to allocate party delegates to candidates at the national convention.  

Candidates listed on the Democratic ballot include Marianne Williamson, Jason Michael Palmer, Dean Phillips and current President Joseph R. Biden Jr.

Candidates on the Republican ballot include former President Donald J. Trump, Nikki R. Haley, Ron DeSantis and Ryan L. Binkley.

The presidential preference primary election will be held from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on March 19.
