The Popular Vote above is based on official returns from the 23 May Primary. This Presidential Primary coincides with a state/local primary. These coinciding primaries tend to have an impact upon voter turnout.
Here's how we compute the delegate count:
Tuesday 23 May 2000: 49 of 58 delegates to the Democratic National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today's Kentucky Presidential Primary.
The remaining 9 National Convention delegates consist of 8 Unpledged PLEOs and 1 Unpledged "add-on"; these 9 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 state's Governor is also a member of the Democratic National Committee and is considered to be a DNC member (i.e. "Party Leader") rather than a Democratic office holder (i.e. "Elected Official") 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:"
