120 Democratic National Convention delegates (105 pledged, 15 unpledged)

The 2020 Georgia Democratic primary, originally planned for March 24, 2020, will take place on Tuesday, May 19, 2020,[a] in the Democratic Party presidential primaries for the 2020 presidential election. The election will coincide with primaries for Georgia's Class 2 Senate seat and Georgia's U.S. House of Representatives seats, as well as presidential primary Oregon. The Georgia primary is an open primary which will award 120 delegates, of which 105 are pledged delegates allocated on the basis of the results of the primary.

Procedure

Georgia was previously scheduled to be the only state voting on March 24, 2020, in the Democratic primaries,[2] after secretary of state Brad Raffensperger announced the date of the primary on June 19, 2019. The move marked a departure from past years, shifting away from a contest on Super Tuesday (also dubbed the "SEC primary"); although its later date may diminish its influence, the Georgia primary's separation from other states on the primary calendar may also place it in a more influential position should the primary still be competitive by then.[3]

Voting is expected to take place throughout the state from 7:00 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 105 pledged delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention will be allocated proportionally on the basis of the results of the primary. Of the 105 pledged delegates, between 3 and 7 are allocated to each of the state's 14 congressional districts and another 14 are allocated to party leaders and elected officials (PLEO delegates), in addition to 23 at-large pledged delegates. These delegate totals do not account for pledged delegate bonuses or penalties from timing or clustering.[4]

District-level delegates will be elected at congressional district caucuses on either Saturday, March 28 or Sunday, March 29 (with discrepancies in the delegate selection plan), and will then convene on Saturday, April 18, in Macon, Dublin, or Milledgeville to select the 14 pledged PLEO delegates. The state committee meeting will subsequently be held in Atlanta on Saturday, May 16, 2020, to vote on the 23 pledged at-large delegates to send to the Democratic National Convention. The 105 pledged delegates Georgia sends to the national convention will be joined by 15 unpledged PLEO delegates (9 members of the Democratic National Committee; 5 members of Congress, all of which are U.S. Representatives; and former president Jimmy Carter).[4]
