78 delegates (68 pledged, 10 unpledged)

The 2020 Missouri 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 Missouri primary is an open primary, with the state awarding 78 delegates, of which 68 are pledged delegates allocated on the basis of the results of the primary.

Procedure[edit]

Missouri 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 6:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. 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 68 pledged delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention will be allocated proportionally on the basis of the results of the primary. Of the 68 pledged delegates, between 4 and 8 are allocated to each of the state's 8 congressional districts and another 9 are allocated to party leaders and elected officials (PLEO delegates), in addition to 15 at-large pledged delegates. Bonus delegates will be allocated as Missouri 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]

Following ward, township, legislative district, and county mass meetings on Thursday, April 9, 2020 during which congressional district and state convention delegates will be designated, congressional district conventions on Thursday, April 30, 2020 will choose national convention district delegates. At the meeting of the Democratic state committee in Jefferson City on Saturday, May 9, 2020, the 9 pledged PLEO delegates will be voted on, while the 15 pledged at-large delegates will be selected at the subsequent state convention in Columbia on Saturday, June 20, 2020. The 68 pledged delegates Missouri sends to the national convention will be joined by 10 unpledged PLEO delegates (7 members of the Democratic National Committee; 2 U.S. Representatives; and Dick Gephardt, former majority leader of the U.S. House of Representatives).[2]
