18 March 2000: Unpledged delegate preference update: Gore 11, Bradley 0. Unpledged delegates appear in the "Soft Unpledged" field.
Bill Bradley, having withdrawn from the campaign, is no longer entitled to receive At-Large and unpledged PLEO delegates (rule 9.C). The 3 At-Large and 5 unpledged PLEO delegates originally assigned to Bradley have been reassigned to Gore in our "Soft Pledged". The "Hard Total" however, shows the delegates as originally assigned.
The Popular Vote above is based on official returns from the 7 March Primary.Here's how we compute the delegate count:
Tuesday 7 March 2000: 54 of 67 delegates to the Democratic National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders based on the results of today's voting in today's Connecticut Presidential Primary.
The remaining 13 National Convention delegates consist of 12 Unpledged PLEOs and 1 Unpledged "add-on"; these 13 delegates will go to the Democratic National Convention officially "Unpledged".
"The breakdown of Unpledged Party Leader and Elected Official delegates to the Democratic National Convention below is somewhat different from that provided by the Democratic Party: the reason for this is that the one or more of its Members of Congress are also members of the Democratic National Committee and are considered to be DNC members (i.e. "Party Leaders") rather than Democratic office holders (i.e. "Elected Officials") by the Party. However, it is the opinion of "The Green Papers" that the average voter/citizen or other interested party who accesses this website would more readily identify Party Leaders who are also Elected Officials by their political office rather than their status as members of the DNC and we, therefore, count them as Elected Officials rather than as Party Leaders in the following breakdown:"
Connecticut will elect 35 district delegates from 6 Congressional Districts.
Connecticut has 8 Counties and 6 Congressional Districts: 3 counties are wholly within a congressional district; 5 counties are divided among more than one congressional district.
In the State of Connecticut, unlike its 5 sister New England states, a Municipality (whether a City or a Borough) which is coterminous with a Town does not mean the eradication of that Municipality's status as a Town. Every part of Connecticut, therefore, is legally under some form of Town government, even where a Municipality has long been incorporated; accordingly, any such coterminous Cities (along with the one Borough where this term also applies- that being Naugatuck in New Haven County) are referred to only as Towns in the listing below:
CD # 1 includes:
most of the Town of Bolton (Tolland County) is in CD 1 but a small portion lies in CD 2.
CD # 2 includes:
CD # 3 includes:
most of the Town of Woodbridge (New Haven County) is in CD 3 but a small portion lies in CD 5.
CD # 4 is wholly within Fairfield County and includes the Towns of
