About Delegates

In 2020 there will be 4,750 delegates:

3,979 pledged delegates and

771 automatic (Super) delegates.

A candidate needs 1,991 pledged delegates to win the nomination on the first ballot.

If the convention goes to a second ballot or more, superdelegates will be able to vote. At that point a candidate must receive majority support from all delegates or more than 2,375 votes.

 

Types of Delegates:

Pledged District - elected at Congressional District conventions.

Pledged At-large - elected at State conventions.

Pledged PLEO - are party leaders and elected officials usually selected in a similar manner to at-large delegates.

 

Automatic delegates (Superdelegates) are unpledged delegates. These include: DNC members, Democratic members of Congress, Democratic governors or distinguished party leaders including former presidents and vice presidents.
