17 delegates (13 pledged, 4 unpledged)

The 2020 Wyoming Democratic caucuses will take place in March 2020, with no date yet confirmed for the state's nomination contest in the Democratic Party presidential primaries for the 2020 presidential election. The Wyoming caucuses are a closed caucus, with the state awarding 17 delegates, of which 13 are pledged delegates allocated on the basis of the results of the caucuses.

Procedure[edit]

While the Wyoming Democratic Party published its draft delegate selection plan on March 21, 2019, it did not set a specific date for the 2020 caucuses, and a final date remains to be set.[1]

County caucuses will begin at 11:00 a.m. across the state. In the closed caucuses, candidates must meet a threshold of 15 percent statewide in order to be considered viable. The 13 pledged delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention will be allocated proportionally on the basis of the results of the firehouse caucus. Of the 13 pledged delegates, 8 correspond to the result of the statewide vote (coterminous with its sole congressional district) and another 2 are allocated to party leaders and elected officials (PLEO delegates), in addition to 3 at-large pledged delegates. However, instead of applying the 15 percent threshold within each category, the state's 13 pledged delegates will be pooled. These delegate totals do not account for pledged delegate bonuses or penalties from timing or clustering.[2]

The caucuses will also designate delegates to the state convention expected in June 2020, where all pledged delegates will be chosen. The 13 pledged delegates Wyoming sends to the national convention will be joined by 4 unpledged PLEO delegates (4 members of the Democratic National Committee).[2]
