Democratic Party
Primary Schedule



 
This chart provides key details about the presidential primaries being conducted by the Democratic party this year. Note that Democrats in all states allocate their delegates in proportion to candidates' share of the vote, in contrast to Republicans, which use a mix of proportional representation and winner-take-all. Proportional representation means that it is harder for the frontrunner to eliminate competition quickly, but provides a greater assurance that the state will send delegates to the national convention that represent all important elements of the party in that state. Also provided is information on which primaries are closed to non- Democrats and which allow independents and sometimes even those registered with other parties to vote in the primary.
