78 delegates (67 pledged, 11 unpledged)

The 2020 Arizona Democratic primary will take place on Tuesday, March 17, 2020, one of three states voting on the same day in the Democratic Party presidential primaries for the 2020 presidential election. The Arizona primary is a closed primary, with the state awarding 78 delegates, of which 67 are pledged delegates allocated on the basis of the results of the primary.

Procedure[edit]

Arizona is one of three states holding primaries on March 17, 2020, the other two being Florida and Illinois.[1]

Voting is expected to take place throughout the state from 6:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. In the closed primary, candidates must meet a threshold of 15 percent at the congressional district or statewide level in order to be considered viable. The 67 pledged delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention will be allocated proportionally on the basis of the results of the primary. Of the 67 pledged delegates, between 3 and 6 are allocated to each of the state's 9 congressional districts and another 9 are allocated to party leaders and elected officials (PLEO delegates), in addition to 14 at-large pledged delegates. These delegate totals do not account for pledged delegate bonuses or penalties from timing or clustering.[2]

Following the primary, district caucuses will be held on Saturday, April 18, 2020 to designate national convention district delegates, and the state convention and state committee meeting will subsequently be held in Phoenix on Saturday, May 16, 2020 to vote on the 14 pledged at-large and 9 PLEO delegates to send to the Democratic National Convention. The 67 pledged delegates Arizona sends to the national convention will be joined by 11 unpledged PLEO delegates (5 members of the Democratic National Committee and 6 members of Congress, including one Senator and 5 U.S. Representatives).[2]
