Delegates in the Democratic primary are awarded on an ongoing basis, as different states and territories vote, with a total of 3,979 pledged delegates up for grabs. To win outright—and to avoid a brokered convention—a candidate will need to claim at least 1,991 delegates during the 2020 primary voting season. The New Yorker will be tallying the most recent totals below, alongside the rest of our Election 2020 campaign coverage. This post is being updated as voting schedules change due to the coronavirus pandemic.
A candidate needs at least 1,991 pledged delegates to win the nomination on the first ballot.
Prior to the national convention, in July, all states, the District of Columbia, and five territories hold elections to allocate pledged delegates.
2020欧洲杯体育投注网Note: The state tallies only include pledged delegates. In the event that none of the candidates win 1,991 pledged delegates, however, things get more complicated. So-called super delegates—an estimated 771 Democratic lawmakers and influential Party members—will be allowed to cast their votes at the Convention in July. That would bring the total number of delegates to 4,750, meaning a candidate would need to claim more than 2,375 of them in order to win.
