2020 United States presidential caucuses in American Samoa
Although American Samoa will not participate in the November 3, 2020, U.S. presidential general election because it is a territory and not a state, it will still participate in the U.S. presidential caucuses and primaries.

11 delegates (6 pledged, 5 unpledged)
to the Democratic National Convention
The 2020 American Samoa Democratic caucuses are tentatively scheduled to take place on Super Tuesday, March 3, 2020, in the Democratic Party presidential primaries for the 2020 presidential election. The American Samoa caucuses are an open caucus, with the territory awarding 11 delegates, of which 6 are pledged delegates allocated on the basis of the results of the caucuses.
When the American Samoa Democratic Party published its draft delegate selection plan on July 3, 2019, it specified a Super Tuesday, March 3 date for the 2020 caucuses; this date was finalized via Facebook on February 1, 2020.
In the open caucuses, candidates must meet a threshold of 15 percent across the territory to be considered viable. The 6 pledged delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention will be allocated proportionally on the basis of the results of the caucuses. Of the 6 pledged delegates, all 6 are at-large pledged delegates.
The following people have filed for the presidential primary. Candidates in italics withdrew prior to the beginning of the voting period.

9 unpledged delegates
The 2020 American Samoa Republican caucuses are tentatively scheduled to take place on March 24, 2020. The territory will award 9 unpledged delegates. These 9 delegates are unpledged unless instructed otherwise by a resolution passed by the American Samoa Republican Party. It is expected that incumbent President Donald Trump will run unopposed, and thus all 9 unpledged delegates will ultimately vote for him at the 2020 Republican National Convention.
