Super Tuesday 2020

Super Tuesday is set for Tuesday, March 3 on the 2020 primary calendar listed below. Visit our Super Tuesday page for more details. This particular date on the primary calendar will be more important than prior years since California, along with some other states that don’t normally vote in March, have moved up their primary date meaning more delegates will be awarded on this day than any other day on the schedule.

Delegates

The delegate count for each primary/caucus represents the total delegates from that primary or caucus for each party and are subject to change.

Primary/Caucus Type

Open – Voters may vote in either party primary regardless of voter party registration but can choose only one primary to vote in
Closed – Only voters registered in their respective party may vote in the party primary
Mixed – A semi-open or a semi-closed environment, unaffiliated voters can choose to vote in either primary or voters can switch registration the day of voting

Delegate Allocation

Democratic primary/caucus delegates are proportionally allocated to the candidates based on their percent share of the vote.

Republican primaries/caucuses delegates will soon be listed as Proportional (P), Winner-Take-All (WTA), or Winner-Take-Most (WTM).

Proportional – Delegates are awarded based on the percentage of the vote received by candidates, or some formulation of dividing up the delegates
Winner Take All – All delegates are given to the winner of the contest
Winner Take Most – Some delegates are reserved for the winner, some may be divided proportionally
Unbound – Delegates are not bound to a specific candidate and can support any candidate of their choosing, varies by the state party organization
