The Popular Vote above is based on official returns for the 7 March Primary obtained from the Missouri Secretary of State.
Here's how we compute the delegate count. (Official results obtained from the SOS April 19, 2000):
Wednesday 1 March 2000: Automatic certification of 15 Unpledged PLEO delegates. These delegates consist of Missouri members of the Democratic National Committee, the Minority Leader of the U.S House of Representatives, the Missouri Democratic Governor, Missouri Democratic Members of Congress, and distinguished former elected officials.
Tuesday 7 March 2000: 75 of Missouri's 92 delegates are allocated in today's Presidential Preference Primary.
Missouri's 49 district delegates to the Democratic National Convention are apportioned from the 9 Congressional Districts as follows:
Thursday 30 March 2000: Ward, township, legislative district meetings and county mass meetings are held.
Thursday 27 April 2000: Election of 49 pledged delegates at the District Convention. The delegates are allocated according to the results of the 7 March Primary.
Saturday 6 May 2000: Democratic State Committee meets to elect 2 unpledged add-on delegates and 10 pledged PLEO (Party Leader and Elected Officials) delegates.
Saturday 13 May 2000: 16 At-large pledged delegates are selected by the State Democratic Convention.
"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:"
Missouri has 114 counties plus 1 city independent of any county and 9 congressional districts: 111 counties are wholly within a given congressional district while 3 counties plus the independent City of St. Louis are divided among more than one congressional district.
UNDIVIDED COUNTIES (wholly within one Congressional District):
DIVIDED COUNTIES (split between more than one Congressional District):
independent City of St. Louis: CDs 1 and 3
CD # 5 is wholly within Jackson County
