2020 Presidential Primaries, Caucuses, and Conventions

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.

Tuesday 18 February - Tuesday 3 March 2020 (presumably): Precinct Caucuses. Candidates for delegates to the county conventions declare their presidential preference (including undecided).

 

Saturday 14 March 2020 (presumably): The County Conventions meet over several days to choose 12 of 27 of Wyoming's delegates to the Republican National Convention. Approximately 980 (?) County precinct committeemen and women are eligible to vote for the National Convention Delegates and Alternates at the County Conventions. Delegate Binding: Delegate Selection Caucus/Convention. Voter Eligibility: Closed Caucus/Convention.

  • Wyoming has 23 counties that are grouped into 12 Delegate-Districts. In each Delegate-District, except Laramie, counties are paired: one county selects a delegate while the other selects an alternate. The counties swap positions after each Presidential election.
  • The arrangement for the Delegate / Alternate Districts are:
    1. Natrona / Albany
    2. Carbon / Sweetwater
    3. Lincoln / Uinta
    4. Sublette Platte / Teton
    5. Park / Fremont
    6. Washakie / Hot Springs
    7. Big Horn / Sheridan Platte
    8. Johnson / Campbell
    9. Weston / Crook
    10. Niobrara / Converse
    11. Platte / Goshen
    12. Laramie, the county that cast the most votes of any county for the Republican candidate for Congress in the general election immediately preceding the National Convention, selects both a Delegate and an Alternate.
