147 delegates (125 pledged, 22 unpledged)

The 2020 Michigan Democratic primary will take place on Tuesday, March 10, 2020, as one of several states voting the week after Super Tuesday in the Democratic Party presidential primaries for the 2020 presidential election. The Michigan primary is an open primary, with the state awarding 147 delegates, of which 125 are pledged delegates allocated on the basis of the results of the primary.

Procedure[edit]

Michigan is one of 7 states holding primaries on March 10, 2020, one week after Super Tuesday.[1]

Voting is expected to take place throughout the state from 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. local time. In the open primary, candidates must meet a threshold of 15 percent at the congressional district or statewide level in order to be considered viable. The 125 pledged delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention will be allocated proportionally on the basis of the results of the primary. Of the 125 pledged delegates, between 4 and 9 are allocated to each of the state's 14 congressional districts and another 16 are allocated to party leaders and elected officials (PLEO delegates), in addition to 27 at-large pledged delegates. Bonus delegates will be allocated as Michigan shares a primary date with numerous other states holding contests the week after Super Tuesday; these numbers do not yet account for these delegates.[2]

After district conventions on Saturday, May 16, 2020 during which district-level delegates will be selected, the state central committee meeting will subsequently be held on Saturday, June 13, 2020 to vote on the 27 pledged at-large and 16 PLEO delegates to send to the Democratic National Convention. The 125 pledged delegates Michigan sends to the national convention will be joined by 22 unpledged PLEO delegates (12 members of the Democratic National Committee; 9 members of Congress, including both Senators and 7 U.S. Representatives; and the governor).[2]
