2020 Primary Delegate Count

As the primaries progress, the Democratic nomination will be decided by which candidate totals up the largest number of pledged state delegates from each caucus or primary election, then totaled with the number of unpledged delegates.

Unpledged delegates, commonly known as “Superdelegates,” are then added to the pledged delegate totals. The complete delegate counts are listed below and updated frequently after each primary or caucus date.

For a list of how many delegates are at stake in each state, see the 2020 Primary Schedule.

Note: Delegate count will be updated within 24 hours following primary contests. It takes time for the vote totals to be certified and for accurate numbers to be released.
