33 total delegate votes - 14 district / 5 at-large; 3 Pledged PLEOs; 10 Unpledged PLEOs; 1 Unpledged add-on
18 March 2000: Unpledged delegate preference update: Gore 10, 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Bill Bradley, having withdrawn from the campaign, is no longer entitled to receive At-Large and unpledged PLEO delegates (rule 9.C).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 2 At-Large and 1 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 unofficial returns from the 7 March Primary.Here's how we compute the delegate count:
Tuesday 7 March 2000: 22 of 33 delegates to the Democratic National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today's Rhode Island Presidential Primary.
The remaining 11 National Convention delegates consist of 10 Unpledged PLEOs and 1 Unpledged "add-on"; these 11 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:"
Rhode Island has 5 Counties and 2 Congressional Districts; 4 counties are wholly within a congressional and only one county is split between the two congressional districts.
The City of Providence (part of Providence County) is divided between CDs 1 and 2.
