The 2020 Washington Democratic primary took place on Tuesday, March 10, 2020, in the U.S. state of Washington as one of several states voting the week after Super Tuesday in the Democratic Party presidential primaries for the 2020 presidential election. The Washington primary is an semi-open primary. The state awards 107 delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention, of which 89 are pledged delegates allocated according to the results of the primary.[3]

On March 16, 2020, major news outlets including CNN, NBC, The New York Times, and the Associated Press called the race for Joe Biden.[4]

Procedure

Washington's presidential primary took place from February 21 to March 10, 2020, one week after Super Tuesday.[5] On March 14, 2019, Governor Jay Inslee signed a bill moving the state's presidential primary up from May to the second Tuesday in March.[6] On April 7, 2019, the Washington Democratic Party's central committee approved the usage of the hybrid vote-by-mail presidential primary in a 121–40 vote.[7]

In Washington, a vote-by-mail state,[8] there is an 18-day voting period and all ballots must be either dropped off by 8:00 p.m. at a designated ballot box or postmarked by the date of the primary. For people's votes to be counted, they must select either a Democratic or Republican ballot. No independent ballots will be accepted. In the primary, candidates must meet a threshold of 15 percent at the congressional district or statewide level to be considered viable. The 89 pledged delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention will be allocated proportionally on the basis of the results of the primary. Of the 89 pledged delegates, between 3 and 11 are allocated to each of the state's 10 congressional districts and another 12 are allocated to party leaders and elected officials (PLEO delegates), in addition to 19 at-large pledged delegates.

Legislative district caucuses will meet on Sunday, April 26, 2020, to choose congressional district caucus and state convention delegates. Counties contained within or coterminous with legislative districts may designate delegates at this time as well, while counties covering more than one district may do so during county conventions on Sunday, May 3, 2020, which normally designate delegates for congressional district caucuses and the state convention. On Saturday, May 30, 2020, the congressional district caucuses meet to select national convention district delegates. The state party committee will subsequently meet at the state convention on Sunday, June 14, 2020, to vote on the 19 pledged at-large and 12 PLEO delegates to send to the Democratic National Convention. The 89 pledged delegates Washington sends to the national convention will be joined by 18 unpledged PLEO delegates (8 members of the Democratic National Committee; 9 members of Congress, including both Senators and 7 U.S. Representatives; and Governor Jay Inslee).
