Kansas Democrats Drop Caucus For Regular Primary

Topeka’s ABC News affiliate reports:

The Kansas Democratic Party announced Thursday that they will hold a party-run primary election on May 2, 2020, instead of a caucus in the state. In a caucus, voters go to their local polling places and stand in to represent their choice from the host of Democratic candidates for president of the United States.

The KDP said the party-run primary will not require the same attendance at polling places and standing in to represent a preferred candidate. The party-run primary will offer options including mail-in early voting and in-person voting for the Democratic 2020 presidential candidates.

Nebraska Democrats made the same move in December. Bernie Sanders dominated the caucus states in 2016.
