Delegate Selection: Advisory Primary
94 total delegate votes - 49 district / 16 at-large; 10 Pledged PLEOs; 17 Unpledged PLEOs; 2 Unpledged add-ons
30 April 2000: Unpledged delegate preference update: Gore 16, Bradley 0. Unpledged delegates appear in the "Soft Unpledged" field.
18 March 2000: Unpledged delegate preference update: Gore 14, 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Bill Bradley, having withdrawn from the campaign, is no longer entitled to receive At-Large and unpledged PLEO delegates (rule 9.C).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 5 At-Large and 3 unpledged PLEO delegates originally assigned to Bradley have been reassigned to Gore in our "Soft Pledged". These are only estimates - no delegates are actually chosen until 3 June 2000.
Tuesday 29 February 2000: Today's state run primary has no effect whatsoever on delegate allocation. The popular vote show above is based on official returns from all ballots cast by REGISTERED DEMOCRATS the open primary. (Democratic Party Rule 10A requires that all states- with the exception of Iowa and New Hampshire- not begin their delegate selection procedures until on or after Tuesday 7 March 2000).
Tuesday 7 March 2000: With 100% of the caucuses reporting, Gore won 5356 caucus delegates, Bradley won 2209, and 267 are uncommitted.
Here's how we roughly estimate the delegate count:
Tuesday 7 March 2000: Democratic Party Caucuses meet in each precinct. Each Precinct Caucus chooses delegates to either County Conventions or Legislative District Caucuses based on presidential preference.
Saturday 22 April 2000: Democratic County Conventions convene in each county wholly within a legislative district. Each County Convention chooses delegates to the Washington State Democratic Convention based on presidential preference.
Saturday 29 April 2000: Democratic Legislative District Caucuses convene in each county NOT wholly within a legislative district. Each Legislative District Caucus chooses delegates to the Washington State Democratic Convention based on presidential preference.
Saturday 3 June 2000: Democratic Congressional District Caucuses convene for each congressional district. Each Congressional District Caucus chooses the district delegates to the Democratic National Convention based on presidential preference.
Saturday 10 June through Sunday 11 June 2000: The Washington State Democratic Convention convenes in Spokane. The State Convention chooses the remaining 26 Pledged delegates to the Democratic National Convention.
The remainder of Washington's 94 National Convention delegates consist of 17 Unpledged PLEOs and 2 Unpledged "add-on"s; these 19 delegates will go to the Democratic National Convention officially "Unpledged".
The breakdown of unpledged delegates is:
Washington has 39 counties and 9 congressional districts: 31 counties are wholly within a given congressional district; 8 counties are divided among more than one congressional district.
UNDIVIDED COUNTIES: (those wholly within one congressional district)
DIVIDED COUNTIES: (those split between more than one congressional district)
CD # 7 is wholly within King County
