Except as provided in this part, presidential nomination primary ballots must be printed in the same manner as state primary ballots as far as practicable. There must be separate ballots for the names of the candidates of each major political party.
At the top of the ballot, the words "Presidential Nomination Primary Ballot" followed directly below by "(party name) Party" must be printed.
The chair of each major political party must submit to the secretary of state the names of the candidates to appear on that party's ballot. Any candidate name submitted by a chair of a major political party must:
be the candidate's true name or the name by which the candidate is commonly and generally known in the community; and
If a party chair has requested that its party ballot contain a place for a voter to indicate a preference for having delegates to the party's national convention remain uncommitted, the party must submit a phrase of no more than three words to be used on the ballot to represent this choice, and this choice must be rotated as a choice with candidate names.
