Presidential Primary from the Minnesota Secretary of State.
12 September 2023: Growe v Simon A23-1354, PETITION PURSUANT TO CHALLENGE PLACEMENT OF DONALD J. TRUMP ON THE 2024 PRIMARY AND GENERAL ELECTION BALLOTS filed in Minnesota.
Tuesday 27 February 2024: Minnesota Precinct Caucus.
Minnesota has same-day registration and does not have registration by party. Party preference is declared when requesting a primary ballot, and the preference is publicly recorded.
The 2020 Presidential Primary is scheduled for 5 March 2024 unless major party chairs agree on a different date by 1 March 2023.
Tuesday 5 March 2024 (presumably): Minnesota Primary. Hours reportedly 7:00a-8:00p CST (1300-0200 UTC). Voting begins at 10:00 AM in some townships. Delegate Binding: Winner-Take-Most Primary. Voter Eligibility: Closed Primary.
All 39 of Minnesota's delegates to the Republican National Convention are bound to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today's Minnesota Presidential.
If a candidate receives 85% or more of the statewide vote, that candidate receives all 39 Congressional District and At-Large delegates. Otherwise:
Rounding of the CD and statewide delegates:
National convention delegates are bound on the first ballot at the national convention. On all subsequent ballots, the delegates are unbound. If a candidate withdraws, the delegates for that candidate become unbound. If a candidate withdraws and then returns to the race, the delegates are once again bound.
Saturday 9 March - Tuesday 16 April 2024 (presumably): Republican Party BPOU [="Basic Political Organization Unit"] Conventions convene in each BPOU. Each BPOU [either a County, State Senate District or State House District] Convention chooses delegates to both the Congressional District Conventions and the State Convention.
Saturday 27 April - Wednesday 15 May 2024 (presumably): Republican Party District Conventions convene in each congressional district elect delegates to the Republican National Convention according to the results of the Presidential Primary.
Thursday 16 May - Saturday 18 May 2024 (presumably): The Minnesota State Republican Convention officially convenes in Rochester. The State Convention chooses the 12 at-large delegates (10 base at-large delegates plus 2 bonus delegates) to the Republican National Convention according to the results of the Presidential Primary.
In addition, 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Republican Party of Minnesota, will attend the convention as pledged delegates by virtue of their position.
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.
