The Secretary of State and party leaders decide who will be listed on the Presidential Preference Primary ballot.
Candidates may also petition the Secretary of State with signatures that amount to one-half of 1 percent of the previous party's total vote in the 2016 Presidential Election.
That would mean 11,398 signatures are needed for the petition.
The deadline for the petition is December 13, 2019
The Primary will be on March 10, 2020.
It is an open Primary, meaning anyone can vote on whichever party's primary ballot they wish!
