Oklahoma 2020 Presidential Primaries, Caucuses, and Conventions:
Democrats   Republicans


Oklahoma is a closed primary state. Only registered voters of a political party may vote to select their party's nominees, however, the Democratic Party is allowing Independent voters to participate in its primaries and runoffs in 2020 and 2021. The Republican and Libertarian Parties will use a closed primary for 2020.

If no candidate receives at least 50% of the vote in the primary, a runoff will be held between the top two vote-getters.

If a candidate is unopposed in the primary or general election, that office does not appear on the ballot.

Oklahoma does not permit write-ins.

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.

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.
