The 2020 Utah Democratic presidential primary took place in Utah, United States, on March 3, 2020, as one of 14 contests scheduled on Super Tuesday in the Democratic Party primaries for the 2020 presidential election, following the South Carolina primary the weekend before. The Utah primary was an open primary, with any registered voter able to participate. The primary awarded 35 delegates towards the 2020 Democratic National Convention, of which 29 were pledged delegates allocated on the basis of the results of the primary. Bernie Sanders won the primary, with Joe Biden coming in second by popular vote.[1]

Procedure[edit]

Utah is one of 14 states which held primaries on March 3, 2020, also known as "Super Tuesday", after the creation of a state-funded presidential primary option in a bill signed on March 22, 2017; a shift to a Super Tuesday contest after the signing of a bill shifting the primary date on March 27, 2019; and the confirmation that the Utah Democratic Party would opt to use the state-funded presidential primary rather than a party-run caucus as in 2016 on April 1, 2019.[2][3]

Voting took place throughout the state from 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. In the primary, candidates must meet a threshold of 15 percent at the congressional district or statewide level in order to be considered viable. The 29 pledged delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention were allocated proportionally on the basis of the results of the primary. Of the 29 pledged delegates, between 2 and 7 are allocated to each of the state's 4 congressional districts and another 4 are allocated to party leaders and elected officials (PLEO delegates), in addition to 6 at-large pledged delegates. Bonus delegates were be allocated as Utah shared a primary date with numerous other states on Super Tuesday; these numbers do not yet account for these delegates.[4]

After county conventions nominating delegates to the state convention between Friday, March 20, 2020 and Saturday, April 4, 2020 as well as neighborhood caucuses to select delegates to the county conventions between Friday, March 20 and Monday, April 27, 2020, the state convention was subsequently held between Friday, April 17 and Saturday, April 18, 2020 to vote on national convention delegates, including 6 unpledged PLEO delegates (5 members of the Democratic National Committee and U.S. Representative Ben McAdams).[4]

Campaign[edit]

As one of the Super Tuesday states, the state had received relatively little attention by the national media. Campaign advertising was dominated by Michael Bloomberg, whose self-funded organization flooded the airwaves with ads, and Bernie Sanders, whose organization had roots in the state and who led in the only poll that was taken in January.

Bloomberg held a major rally in Salt Lake City on February 20, 2020[5] and Pete Buttigieg held one on February 17.[6] Others may have had smaller events.
