248 delegates (219 pledged, 29 unpledged)

The 2020 Florida 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 Florida primary is a closed primary, with the state awarding 248 delegates, of which 219 are pledged delegates allocated on the basis of the results of the primary.

Procedure[edit]

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

Voting is expected to take place throughout the state from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. local time. 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 219 pledged delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention will be allocated proportionally on the basis of the results of the primary. Of the 219 pledged delegates, between 3 and 7 are allocated to each of the state's 27 congressional districts and another 29 are allocated to party leaders and elected officials (PLEO delegates), in addition to 47 at-large pledged delegates. These delegate totals do not account for pledged delegate bonuses or penalties from timing or clustering.[2]

Following the primary, post-primary congressional district caucuses will convene on Saturday, May 2, 2020 to designate national convention district delegates, and the state convention will subsequently be held on Saturday, May 30, 2020 to vote on the 47 pledged at-large and 29 PLEO delegates to send to the Democratic National Convention. The 219 pledged delegates Florida sends to the national convention will be joined by 29 unpledged PLEO delegates (14 members of the Democratic National Committee; 13 members of Congress, of which all are U.S. Representatives; and former DNC chairs Kenneth M. Curtis and Debbie Wasserman Schultz).[2]
