Tuesday 7 June 2016: 126 of 142 delegates to the Democratic National Convention are pledged to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today's New Jersey Presidential Primary. A mandatory 15 percent threshold is required in order for a presidential contender to be allocated National Convention delegates at either the congressional district or statewide level. How the Democratic Proportional Delegate Allocation Math works.

  • 84 delegates are to be pledged proportionally to presidential contenders based on the primary results in each of 20 "delegate districts" (unlike the Democratic Parties in most other states, New Jersey's Democrats will not be allocating the state's district delegates to the Democratic National Convention by congressional district but, instead, will utilize 20 special "delegate districts", each of which will consist of two Legislative Districts paired together. (New Jersey elects its State Legislature by Legislative District shared by both the Senate [the upper house] and the General Assembly [the lower house]: each of the state's 40 Legislative Districts [LD] elects 1 of the 40 state senators and 2 of the 80 state assemblymen).
  • In addition, 42 delegates are to be pledged to presidential contenders based on the primary vote statewide.
    • 28 at-large National Convention delegates
    • 14 Pledged PLEOs

Delegates
  126  79  47

District-level delegates are elected by a two-part primary in which delegate positions are allocated based on a Presidential preference primary and filled through the election of delegates directly on the ballot. National Convention District delegates slates are approved by each Presidential candidate prior to the primary.

 

Wednesday 15 June 2016: State Convention

If a presidential candidate has qualified to receive District delegates but has failed to slate a sufficient number of delegate candidates, a special post-primary caucus at the State Convention will fill the positions.

National Convention Pledged PLEO and At-Large delegates are elected according to the results of the primary.

The remaining 16 National Convention delegates consist of

  • 16 Unpledged PLEO delegates:
    • 8 Democratic National Committee members.
    • 8 Members of Congress (2 Senators and 6 Representatives).
    • 0 Governors.
    • 0 Distinguished Party Leaders.

These 16 delegates and will go to the Democratic National Convention officially "Unpledged".
