Polls open Tuesday for presidential primary

Updated: Mar 19

Correction: In an earlier version of this story, it indicated that Libertarian voters could vote in the presidential primary. However, no Libertarian candidate gathered enough signatures to be on the ballot. We regret the error.

MOUND CITY – Republican, Democratic, and some uncommitted voters will head to the polls on Tuesday, March 19, to cast ballots in the statewide presidential primary race.

Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m., and voters will get to decide which candidates will represent their parties in November.

Strike that. Both frontrunners President Joseph Biden and former President Donald Trump have already sewn up their parties’ nominations following Super Tuesday last week where, through primaries and caucuses, both candidates have received enough committed delegates to win their respective parties' nominations.

Nonetheless, Linn County voters will have the opportunity to make their choices on an election that is expected to cost the state $5 million.

Voters who are undeclared can choose to declare a party affiliation at the polls, according Linn County Clerk David Lamb.

The Democrat filed candidates are:

• Dean Phillips

• Jason Michael Palmer

• Joseph R Biden Jr.

• Marianne Williamson

The Republican filed candidates are:

• Donald J. Trump

• Nikki R. Haley

• Ron DeSantis

• Ryan L. Binkley

No third-party candidates, such as Libertarians, paid the $10,000 filing fee to appear on the ballot.
