Tuesday 22 March 2016: Idaho Democratic Party's first tier County Caucuses meet in each county. 23 of 27 delegates to the Democratic National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders in proportion to the percentage of the support each candidate receives. A mandatory 15 percent threshold is required in order for a presidential contender to be allocated National Convention delegates at the congressional district level or statewide level. Here is how the Democratic Proportional Delegate Allocation Math works.

  • 15 district delegates are to be allocated proportionally to presidential contenders based on the results in each of the State's 2 congressional districts.
  • 8 delegates are pledged to presidential contenders based on the support each candidate receives statewide.
    • 5 at-large National Convention delegates
    • 3 Pledged PLEOs
