Indiana 2016 Presidential Primaries, Caucuses, and Conventions:
Democrats   Republicans


NOTE: In any Primary election in INDIANA, voters state which Party they are affiliated with by asking the poll workers for the ballot of that Party in a given Primary. A voter's party affiliation is determined solely by his or her Primary voting record; the state's voter registration form does NOT provide a place for the voter to state Party affiliation.

Even though the history of a voter's Party affiliation- solely as determined by the individual voter's Primary voting record- is part of the public record, the informaton is NOT available at the polling place. Any voter, however, may challenge another voter's Party affiliation at the polls:

In such a case, the voter making the challenge (the "challenger") fills out an affidavit that the voter being challenged (the "challengee") has not, in fact, voted in the Party's Primaries in the past, an assertion against which the challengee must fill out a counter-affidavit, asserting that they intend to vote for a majority of the candidates of the challengee's Party of choice in the next General Election. If the challengee fills out this counter-affidavit, the challengee is allowed to vote in the Primary; however, if the challengee refuses, he or she is not allowed to vote in the Primary.

Nevertheless, since General Election ballots are cast in secret, the intention expressed in the counter-affidavit by the challengee is impossible to enforce.


The Libertarian Party nominates by convention rather than by primary.

Democratic and Republican Party nominations for Secretary of State, Auditor, and Treasurer will be decided by convention.


Indiana law forbids anyone from appearing on the general election ballot more the once.

Notes

Candidates for office appear on this page in italics where 'The Green Papers' does not yet have independent confirmation from a legal election authority that the person has been officially certified to appear on the ballot.

"Apparently not a candidate" indicates that someone we once listed as a candidate for an elective office will not, in fact, be running for that office (primarily because said candidate is not listed on an official ballot provided by a jurisdiction's election authorities, where that candidate has not previously withdrawn his/her candidacy or otherwise indicated no longer [or even ever] being a candidate for that office).

Primary dates marked "presumably" and polling times marked "reportedly" are based on unofficial or estimated data (especially as regards local variations from a jurisdictionwide statutory and/or regulatory standard) and are, thereby, subject to change.

"FEC" indicates the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Campaign Finance Summary.

When available, we post each candidate's FEC identification number, the date of their most recently filed Report of Receipts and Disbursements, their "Tot" [Total Receipts (contributions received or what came in: FEC Form 3, Line 16, Column B)] and their "Dsb" [Total Disbursements (expenditures or what was spent: FEC Form 3, Line 23, Column B)]. A link is provided to the Federal Election Commission's Summary Report for those who might wish to explore the details.

If a candidate raises or spends $5,000 or less, he or she is not subject to FEC reporting requirements.
