The vote above is from the 11 March and 12 March caucuses. (These are the final results).
Here's how we compute the district delegate count:
The "vote" is the percentage of delegates rounded to the nearest whole number.
The 10 Pledged PLEO and 16 At-Large delegates are allocated by the statewide qualified vote. Bill Bradley, having withdrawn from the campaign, is not entitled to receive At-Large and PLEO delegates. Al Gore, the only remaining candidate to receive 15% of the statewide vote, receives these 26 delegates.
Note: Minnesota state law specifies that precinct caucuses will take place at 7 p.m. on the first Tuesday in March -- March 7 this year. However, because the courts have ruled that the conduct of a political party's affairs is up to the party alone, not the Legislature, the DFL Party will be holding a binding presidential primary in conjunction with the party's precinct meetings on Saturday and Sunday, March 11 and 12.
Saturday 11 March and Sunday 12 March 2000: 74 of 91 delegates to the Democratic National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting at this weekend's Minnesota Democratic Precinct Meetings.
District Delegate Allocation:
The remaining 17 National Convention delegates consist of 15 Unpledged PLEOs and 2 Unpledged "add-on"s; these 17 delegates will go to the Democratic National Convention officially "Unpledged".
The breakdown of unpledged delegates is:
Minnesota has 87 counties and 8 congressional districts: 78 counties are wholly within a given congressional district; 9 counties are divided among more than one congressional district.
UNDIVIDED COUNTIES (wholly within one Congressional District):
DIVIDED COUNTIES (split between more than one Congressional District):
