WARRENTON — Missouri Republicans will not have a presidential primary in 2024 after the Missouri legislature missed a deadline to reinstate it.
The primary would have been on March 12, but now Republicans will have to caucus on March 2 instead.
The caucuses are scheduled to begin at 10 a.m., and those participating should be expected to stay for a while.
According to Bev Ehlen, chairwoman of the Warren County Republican Party, registration begins at 9:15 a.m. March 2 in the lower level training room at the Warren County Administration Building, 101 Mockingbird Lane in Warrenton.
Lawmakers eliminated the state-run presidential primary in 2022. The Missouri House failed to pass a bill to reinstate the presidential primary in April.
Missouri Democrats will have their primary using mail-in voting and an in-person election on March 23.
