The Progressive Party chose its candidate in a different way than the Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, and Greens. Due to being founded three and a half months before the election, they decided to do a nationwide primary on August 15th with 1,500 delegates (all pledged) and then a convention from August 30th to September 2nd. All candidates could only withdraw during the convention.
