22 of 31 delegates to the Democratic National Convention are pledged to presidential contenders based on the preferences expressed today's Hawaii Caucus. A mandatory 15 percent threshold is required in order for a presidential contender to be pledged National Convention delegates at either the Congressional District Level or statewide level. Here is how the Democratic Proportional Delegate Allocation Math works.

  • 14 district delegates are to be pledged proportionally to presidential contenders based on the party-run primary results in each of Hawaii's 2 Congressional Districts.
  • 8 delegates are to be pledged to presidential contenders based on the party-run primary results statewide.
    • 5 at-large National Convention delegates
    • 3 Pledged PLEOs
