After guilty verdict, Trump will appear on the ballot in the final presidential primaries of 2024

NEW YORK (AP) — Donald Trump’s name will appear on the ballot Tuesday for the first time since his historic conviction for felony crimes while a handful of states hold the last republican presidential primaries of 2024.

The former president will be on the electoral lists during the Republican elections in Montana, New Jersey And New Mexico. President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, will participate in primaries in the same states, as well as the primary in Washington DCand one in South Dakota.

Republicans in Washington DC held a party-organized primary in March. South Dakota canceled its GOP presidential primary because Trump was uncontested.

Voters will also cast ballots in primaries for federal, state, and local offices in those states.

Both Trump and Biden should easily win in these elections, where they are the last major candidates left in the race.

But the results could reflect voters’ concerns about their choices as the November election approaches.

If Trump’s margins of victory are closer than expected, it could be a sign that voters are hesitant to nominate a presidential candidate with a criminal record.

Trump’s dominance in the primaries was also overshadowed by continued support from a minority of Republican voters for former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, who dropped out of college in March. Tuesday’s contests will be the first since Haley said two weeks ago she would vote for Trump in November. They can indicate whether her supporters will follow her.
