2020 Presidential Preference Primary Ballot Set

Tuesday, December 3, 2019

Secretary of State Tre Hargett on Tuesday certified the names of three Republican and 16 Democrat presidential candidates for the March 3 Super Tuesday presidential preference primary.

On Super Tuesday, Tennessee will join 13 states to help decide who will be the next president of the United States.

The following candidates will be on the March 3 ballot:
Republican Primary Ballot
Donald J. Trump
Joe Walsh
Bill Weld

Democratic Primary Ballot
Michael Bennet
Joseph R. Biden
Michael R. Bloomberg
Cory Booker
Pete Buttigieg
Julián Castro
John K. Delaney
Tulsi Gabbard
Kamala Harris
Amy Klobuchar
Deval Patrick
Bernie Sanders
Tom Steyer
Elizabeth Warren
Marianne Williamson
Andrew Yang

As certified candidates for the presidential preference primary, these candidates are unable to appear on the Nov. 3 general election ballot as the nominee of a different political party.

“This primary will determine which candidates will represent these two political parties on the November ballot for our country’s highest elected office,” said Secretary Hargett. “I hope every eligible Tennessean will register to vote or make sure their voter registration is updated by the Feb. 3 voter registration deadline. It is easy to register to vote or update existing voter records by visiting our online voter registration system at GoVoteTN.com.”

The deadline for 2020 presidential delegate candidates to file a petition to be elected is noon Dec. 12. Delegate candidates are not considered qualified unless the Division of Elections receives a letter from a presidential campaign authorizing the delegate candidate to run.

Both the Tennessee Republican Party and the Tennessee Democratic Party have their own rules about selecting presidential delegates. Republican presidential delegates are decided by an election, coordinated through the division of elections. Party rules determine Democratic presidential delegates.

Leave C.E. James Monument And Park Alone - And Response (4)

The recent controversy over the monument to our town's founder, C.E. James, is more than a completely unnecessary and avoidable waste of time and possibly money - it is contrived and downright silly. Race-based restrictions on residential real estate sales weren't just common a century ago, they were universal in both the North and South. Such "red-lining" didn't start to die out ...

As I paused to dwell on ... (click for more)
