Disclaimer:
These pages contain a combination of official, unofficial, and estimated data. The information posted here is subject to change.

The delegate selection processes herein, along with any and all dates associated therewith, are unofficial and based on either (1) information obtained from either Major Party, (2) Presidential Primary dates established by currently-effective State statute, or- where the foregoing information could not be obtained- (3) the state's 2016 delegate selection process and associated dates adjusted to the corresponding dates in 2020.

Democrats

  • Democratic pledged delegate counts are determined by the jurisdiction's Presidential vote in 2008, 2012, and 2016; along with the jurisdiction's electoral vote allocation based on 2010 census for the number of electors in 2020.
  • Democratic unpledged delegate counts are determined by the number of DNC Members, Democratic Governors, Democratic U.S. House members, and Democratic U.S. Senators serving at the time of the convention. The count for DNC Members, Distinguished Party Leaders is from the 2016 Convention. The tallies of Governors, Democratic U.S. House members, and Democratic U.S. Senators are the current officeholders.
  • Democratic Bonus Delegates and penalties are not included in these delegate tallies.

Republicans

  • Republican delegate counts are based on the number of Republicans elected to the State Legislatures, Governors chairs, U.S. House seats, and U.S. Senators seats through 31 December 2019. Republican unpledged delegate counts are determined by state (or equivalent) party rules. We have assumed that the policies of 2016 will apply in 2020.
  • The Republican district delegate count is based on the number of U.S. House members each state will elect in 2020.
  • Republican penalties for violating the timing window are not included in these delegate tallies.

Oregon Primaries for Statewide offices and Congress

This Presidential Primary coincides with a state/local primary. These coinciding primaries tend to have an impact upon voter turnout.

This is a vote by mail primary. State election officials will be mailing ballots out to registered voters before the election; the voter has until 8 PM local time on the date of the Primary to return the completed ballot to either the county election office or a designated drop site -- postmarks do not count.

Tuesday 19 May 2020 (presumably): Oregon Primary. Polling hours reportedly end at 8:00p PDT (0300 UTC) / 8:00p MDT (0200 UTC). Oregon votes by mail. Ballots must be in the hands of election workers or in an official drop-off location no later than 8 PM local time. OREGON is the reverse of the norm because the by far largest portion of the state is in the lagging time zone and the networks have no choice but to not consider the OREGON polls closed until 8 PM Pacific. Delegate Binding: Proportional Primary. Voter Eligibility: Closed Primary.

Tuesday 19 May 2020 (presumably): All 28 of Oregon's delegates to the Republican National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today's Presidential Primary.

  • 28 (15 district, 10 at-large, 0 bonus, plus 3 party leader) delegates to the National Convention are to be bound to presidential contenders based on the primary vote statewide. Compute the number of delegates each candidate receives by taking 28 delegates × the candidate's statewide vote ÷ the total statewide and round down to the whole number. If too few delegates are allocated, round up those candidates with the largest remainders until all delegates have been allocated. [Special Rules for the ORP 7.6]

The 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Oregon's Republican Party, will attend the convention as bound delegates by virtue of their position.

 

Saturday 6 June 2020 (presumably): District and State Conventions. District and Statewide (at-large) Delegates are elected according to the results of the primary.

Each person selected as a delegate ... shall sign a pledge that he/she shall vote at the National Convention for the candidate for the President of the United States he/she favors until the candidate is: (1) nominated; (2) receives less than 35% of the votes for nomination at the convention; (3) releases the delegate from the pledge; or (4) until two convention nominating ballots have been taken. Should a delegate ... refuse to cast his/her vote in accordance with this pledge ... the Chairman of the Oregon delegation ... shall report to the convention floor that delegate's vote in accordance with such laws and rules until such time as that delegate is released from his/her pledge. [Oregon Republican Party Bylaws ARTICLE XVII Section B.; State Law (ORS 248.315)]
