The Kansas Presidential Preference Primary has followed a nationwide trend that has placed President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump as the primary/popular candidates on the ballot for the 2024 election.

According to official election results, Sedgwick County had 6.22% of registered voters participate in the election. Statewide, there was a 7% turnout. 

Trump won 75% of the Republican vote, gaining 39 delegates. Nikki Haley, who suspended her presidential campaign on March 6 after major losses on Super Tuesday, won 16% of the vote. 

Biden won 83% of the Democratic vote, gaining 33 delegates. 10% of the vote went to “none of these names shown,” and Marianne Williamson received 3% of the votes. The 2024 presidential election will take place on Nov. 5. To participate in the election, you must register to vote by Oct. 15. To register to vote in Kansas, visit kdor.ks.gov/apps/voterreg/
