2020 Wyoming Democratic caucuses

17 delegates (13 pledged, 4 unpledged)

The 2020 Wyoming Democratic caucuses will take place on April 4, 2020, in the Democratic Party presidential primaries for the 2020 presidential election. The Wyoming caucuses are a closed caucus, with the state awarding 17 delegates, of which 13 are pledged delegates allocated on the basis of the results of the caucuses.

Procedure[edit]

The Wyoming Democratic Party published its final approved delegate selection plan on October 9, 2019, outlining that April 4 will be the first determining date for its party-run 2020 caucuses, which shall be decided throughout the process by Ranked-Choice votes. Only registered Democrats (defined as all persons residing in the county and registered to vote as Democrats at least by March 20) will be able to vote in the election, and they can either choose to vote by: mail (from January 30 to March 20), at the voter station of their county on March 28, or at the caucus event itself on April 4. Voters who wish to participate in the Caucus event on April 4 and cast their vote by a specifically marked "Caucus Day Ballot", will not be eligible to do so if they prior to the event have voted by mail or at a voter station.[1]

County caucuses will begin across the state at 11:00 a.m. on April 4. In the closed caucuses, candidates must meet a threshold of 15 percent statewide in order to be considered viable. The 13 pledged delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention will be allocated proportionally on the basis of the results of the firehouse caucus. Of the 13 pledged delegates, 8 correspond to the result of the statewide vote (coterminous with its sole congressional district) and another 2 are allocated to party leaders and elected officials (PLEO delegates), in addition to 3 at-large pledged delegates. However, instead of applying the 15 percent threshold within each category, the state's 13 pledged delegates will be pooled. These delegate totals do not account for pledged delegate bonuses or penalties from timing or clustering.[2]

The caucuses will also designate delegates to the state convention expected in June 2020, where all pledged delegates will be chosen. The 13 pledged delegates Wyoming sends to the national convention will be joined by 4 unpledged PLEO delegates (4 members of the Democratic National Committee).[2]
