42 delegates (37 pledged, 5 unpledged)

The 2020 Oklahoma Democratic primary will take place on Tuesday, March 3, 2020, as one of 14 contests scheduled on Super Tuesday in the Democratic Party presidential primaries for the 2020 presidential election, following the South Carolina primary the weekend before. The Oklahoma primary is a semi-closed primary, with the state awarding 42 delegates, of which 37 are pledged delegates allocated on the basis of the results of the primary.

Procedure[edit]

Oklahoma is one of 14 states holding primaries on March 3, 2020, also known as "Super Tuesday".[1]

Voting is expected to take place throughout the state from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. In the semi-closed primary, candidates must meet a threshold of 15 percent at the congressional district or statewide level in order to be considered viable. The 42 pledged delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention will be allocated proportionally on the basis of the results of the primary. Of the 42 pledged delegates, between 4 and 6 are allocated to each of the state's 5 congressional districts and another 5 are allocated to party leaders and elected officials (PLEO delegates), in addition to 8 at-large pledged delegates. Bonus delegates will be allocated as Oklahoma shares a primary date with numerous other states on Super Tuesday; these numbers do not yet account for these delegates.[2]

The state convention will subsequently be held on Saturday, April 4, 2020 to vote on the national convention delegates, including 5 unpledged PLEO delegates (4 members of the Democratic National Committee and a single member of Congress, U.S. Representative Kendra Horn).[2]
