The Presidential Preference Election is not a primary election. That means Arizona’s open primary law does not apply to the Presidential Preference election and only Democrats can cast ballots in the election on March 17th. The Arizona Republican Party decided not to participate in the Presidential Preference Election this year.

Registered voters that have no party affiliation or are registered independent or with another political party and want to vote in the PPE must change their party affiliation to Democratic by February 18.
