6 May 2000: Unpledged delegate preference update: Gore 5, Bradley
0. Unpledged delegates appear in the "Soft Unpledged" field.
The Popular Vote above is based on unofficial
returns from the 6 May caucuses (100% of the caucuses reporting).
Here's how we compute the delegate count:
- A candidate must receive 15% or more of the total caucus vote to qualify for delegates. Discard those votes cast for candidates who do not qualify.
- Allocate Congressional District delegates from the qualified vote in each district. Allocate Pledged PLEO and At-Large delegates using the statewide qualified vote. Bill Bradley, having withdrawn from the campaign, is not entitled to receive At-Large and PLEO delegates.
- In each jurisdiction:
- Total qualified vote = total votes cast for the qualifying candidates in the jurisdiction.
- Allocation = (delegates for the jurisdiction) × (candidate's caucus vote) ÷ (total qualified vote).
- Assign each candidate the WHOLE NUMBER of delegates.
- If delegates remain, allocate each of the remaining delegates to those candidates with the LARGEST REMAINDERS.

Saturday 6 May 2000: 23 of 42 delegates to the Democratic National
Convention are allocated to presidential contenders based on the
results of today's Congressional District Conventions.
- "23 district delegates are to be allocated proportionally to
presidential contenders based on the results from the Congressional
District Conventions in each of the State's 4 congressional districts.
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."
Here is the breakdown of district delegates per CD:

Saturday 17 June 2000: Kansas State Convention. The State Committee
meeting is held in coordination with the Kansas State Democratic
Convention. It does NOT appear that the
Convention as a whole will have anything to do with Democratic National
Convention delegate selection.
- "The Kansas State Committee chooses the 8 at-large National
Convention delegates plus 5 Pledged PLEO
delegates to the Democratic National Convention reflecting the support
for the presidential contenders in the District Conventions as a whole.
Such Pledged National Convention delegates are to be allocated to
presidential contenders in proportion to the percentage of the support
each candidate received- a mandatory 15 percent threshold being
required for such allocation."
The remaining 6 National Convention delegates consist of 5
Unpledged PLEOs and 1 Unpledged "add-on"s;
these 6 delegates will go to the Democratic National Convention
The breakdown of unpledged delegates is:
- 4 Democratic National Committee members
- 1 Member of Congress (Representative)
- 1 add-on
