Sunday 24 August 2008: The Democratic National Convention's Credentials Committee has, at the request of Senator Barack Obama, voted to restore full voting strength to the delegates from Michigan and Florida, bringing the primary dispute to closure. The panel approved the full seating of Michigan and Florida with no debate or opposing votes.

Sunday 3 August 2008: Reports state that Democratic nominee apparent Senator Barack Obama has asked the Democratic National Convention's Credentials Committee to restore Florida and Michigan to a "full vote" when it meets on 24 August.

Saturday 31 May 2008: Rules and Bylaws Committee Meeting

The main item of business on the Committee's agenda will be the consideration of two pending challenges regarding the seating of the Florida and Michigan Delegations. The Committee will hear proposals from Michigan State University Trustee Joel Ferguson and Florida party official Jon Ausman.

A motion to restore the Michigan Delegation to 50% of the state's pledged delegate votes and 50% of their unpledged delegate votes (with a pledged delegate distribution of Clinton 34.5, Obama 29.5) was made. The Committee approved the motion with a vote of 19 in favor, 8 opposed, 0 abstentions.

The seating of these delegations is discussed in our commentary series "THEATRE OF THE POLITICALLY ABSURD ... The Relationship between State Law and Party Rules and the 'Punishing' of the former where violative of the latter" by Richard E. Berg-Andersson Staff

"Vox Populi" ('Letters to the Editor' on this website) in response to the above pieces were those dated

On 7 May 2008, the Michigan Democratic Executive Committee voted to ask the DNC's Rules and Bylaws Committee to approve a Clinton 69, Obama 59 pledged delegate split and seat the full Michigan Delegation at the National Convention. The Rules Committee meets 31 May. Reports state that the math splits the difference between the 73 delegates Clinton won in the 15 January primary and the 64-64 split the Obama campaign wanted. It also gives a Clinton 54% to Obama 46% delegate split. PA split their popular vote Clinton 55%, Obama 45% on 22 April 2008; OH split the vote Clinton 54%, Obama 44% on 4 March 2008; and NJ split the vote Clinton 55%, Obama 44% on 5 February 2008.

Assuming no sanctions, the pledged delegate split from the Tuesday 15 January 2008 primary is Clinton 73, Uncommitted 55.

The Michigan Democrats also voted to move their State Central Committee meeting from 17 May to 14 June. The party plans to elect 28 At-Large, 17 Pledged PLEO, and 2 Unpledged "add-ons"s at that meeting. 83 pledged district delegates were elected last month at the 19 April 2008 District Conventions.

20 April 2008 Media Article: Michigan Democrats pick delegates

The 12 December 2007 Voter Guide published by the Democratic Party states: "A vote for "uncommitted" is a vote to send delegates to the Democratic National Convention who are not committed or pledged to any candidate. Those delegates can vote for any candidate they choose at the Convention. Supporters of Joe Biden, John Edwards, Barack Obama and Bill Richardson are urged to vote "uncommitted" instead of writing in their candidates’ names because write-in votes for those candidates will not be counted.

Voter Guide for 1/15/08 Primary
Q & A for 1/15/08 Primary


Certified returns of the 15 January 2008 primary from an official source.

Here's how we compute the delegate count assuming that the full delegation is seated (based on certified returns of the 15 January 2008 primary from an official source):

  1. A candidate must receive 15% or more of the total popular vote to qualify for delegates. Discard votes cast for those candidates who do not qualify. Clinton and Uncommitted have qualified for delegates.
  2. Allocate Congressional District delegates from the qualified vote in each district. Allocate Pledged PLEO and At-Large delegates using the state-wide qualified vote.
  3. In each jurisdiction (CD and statewide):
    1. Total qualified vote = total votes cast for the qualifying candidates in the jurisdiction.
    2. Allocation = (delegates for the jurisdiction) × (candidate's popular vote) ÷ (total qualified vote).
    3. Assign each candidate the WHOLE NUMBER of delegates.
    4. If delegates remain, allocate each of the remaining delegates to those candidates with the LARGEST REMAINDERS.

On 1 December 2007, the DNC has determined that the date of Michigan's 15 January 2008 primary violates party rules and has decided to strip the state of its delegation. The determination was made official on 5 January 2008. Michigan had 128 pledged delegate votes (83 district, 28 at-large, and 17 PLEO) and 29 unpledged delegate votes (18 unpledged DNC members, 1 Governor, 2 Democratic U.S. Senators, 6 Democratic U.S. House Members, and 2 add-ons). Total delegate votes changed from 157 to 0. will be tracking delegate counts as both "Soft" (here assuming that relevant delegations will remain sanctioned into the respective National Conventions [that is: with no delegates to be seated at the Democratic National Convention]) and as "Alternative" (here assuming that the full delegation of an affected jurisdiction- as originally allocated before being sanctioned- is eventually to be seated [that is, at some point before the Conventions, sanctions will be lifted]) from now until the Democratic National Convention convenes or until no delegation is any longer sanctioned, if this should occur prior to the Conventions.

On Saturday 31 May 2008 a motion to restore the Michigan Delegation to 50% of the state's pledged delegate votes and 50% of their unpledged delegate votes (with a pledged delegate distribution of Clinton 34.5, Obama 29.5) was made. The Committee approved the motion with 19 in favor, 8 opposed, 0 abstentions. We have not updated the verbiage below to reflect the change.
