The delegate selection processes herein, along with any and all dates and delegate counts associated therewith, are unofficial and based on either (1) information obtained from either Major Party, (2) Presidential Primary dates established by currently-effective State statute, or- where the foregoing information could not be obtained- (3) the state's 2016 delegate selection process and associated dates adjusted to the corresponding dates in 2020.

Republicans

  • Republican delegate counts are based on the number of Republicans elected to the State Legislatures, Governors chairs, U.S. House seats, and U.S. Senators seats through 31 December 2019. Republican unpledged delegate counts are determined by state (or equivalent) party rules. We have assumed that the policies of 2016 will apply in 2020.
  • The Republican district delegate count is based on the number of U.S. House members each state will elect in 2020.
  • Republican penalties for violating the timing window are not included in these delegate tallies.

Delegate Selection Plan from the Oregon Secretary of State.

May 19, 2020 Primary Election from the Oregon Secretary of State.


   

This Presidential Primary coincides with a state/local primary. These coinciding primaries tend to have an impact upon voter turnout.

This is a vote by mail primary. State election officials will be mailing ballots out to registered voters between 18 to 14 days before the election. Voters have until 8 PM local time on the date of the Primary to return the completed ballot.

Participation in Oregon's delegate selection process is open to registered Democrats.

Tuesday 19 May 2020: Oregon Primary. Hours reportedly end at 8:00p PDT (0300 UTC) / 8:00p MDT (0200 UTC). Oregon votes by mail. Ballots must be in the hands of election workers or in an official drop-off location no later than 8 PM local time. OREGON is the reverse of the norm because the by far largest portion of the state is in the lagging time zone and the networks have no choice but to not consider the OREGON polls closed until 8 PM Pacific. Delegate Pledging: Proportional Primary. Voter Eligibility: Closed Primary.

61 of 75 delegates to the Democratic National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today's Oregon Presidential Primary. 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. How the Democratic Proportional Delegate Allocation Math works.

  • 41 district delegates are to be allocated proportionally to presidential contenders based on the primary results in each of the State's 5 congressional districts.
  • In addition, 20 delegates are to be allocated to presidential contenders based on the primary vote statewide.
    • 13 at-large National Convention delegates
    • 7 Pledged PLEOs
