District 4, a key district in all national elections in Panem, is holding the first ever presidential and vice presidential primary in Panem’s history.
A primary is a system of selecting a party’s nominee for an office. The Liberty Party, the Labor Party, and People for Panem will all hold presidential primaries and vice presidential primaries in District 4 today, though the Liberty Party’s presidential primary is expected to be non-competitive, as is with the Labor Party’s primary for vice president.
UPDATE 1: We have the results of the Liberty Party’s presidential primary.
In an expected landslide victory, incumbent President Katniss Everdeen can now scratch District 4 off her primaries list.
President Katniss Everdeen – 96 percent
Other/Invalid – 4 percent
UPDATE 2: We can label the vice presidential nomination race for the Liberty Party as too close to call.
