2020 Party-run Presidential Primary


What is a Party-run Presidential Primary?

In 2020, Hawai'i Democrats will vote for the Presidential nominee who will take on President Trump. This Presidential election could be the most important election in a lifetime. The Party-run Presidential Primary (PPP) is Hawai'i's opportunity to impact this critical election.

On April 30, our State Central Committee adopted this final plan to submit to the Democratic National Committee for approval.


What are the highlights?

  • Mail-in ballots will be provided to every Democrat registered with the Democratic Party of Hawai'i.
  • Voting will be conducted with ranked choice ballots, allowing voters to list their preferred candidates from 1 - 5.
  • In-person voting & same day registration options will be provided on April 4.


Join a Kukui Hui

Members from districts and organizations around the state are joining together to donate $1,000 toward the PPP effort. (More information is coming soon)


This ambitious project can't happen without the financial support of our members. Donate today to help us reach our goal.
