The 2020 Virginia 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 Virginia primary is an open primary, wherein any registered voter can vote, regardless of party registration. The state awards 124 delegates. 99 of these delegates are pledged delegates, allocated at the local level.

Contents Procedure

Virginia 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 6:00 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 99 pledged delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention will be allocated proportionally on the basis of the results of the primary. Of the 99 pledged delegates, between 4 and 7 are allocated to each of the state's 11 congressional districts and another 13 are allocated to party leaders and elected officials (PLEO delegates), in addition to 21 at-large pledged delegates. Bonus delegates will be allocated as Virginia shares a primary date with numerous other states on Super Tuesday; these numbers do not yet account for these delegates.[2]

After city and county caucuses between Saturday, April 18 and Monday, April 20, 2020, during which district delegates will be elected for subsequent congressional district conventions on Saturday, May 2, 9, and 16, 2020, as well as the state convention. At the congressional district conventions, national convention district level delegates will be nominated. The state convention will then convene on Saturday, June 13, 2020, to vote on the 21 pledged at-large and 13 PLEO delegates to send to the Democratic National Convention. The 99 pledged delegates Virginia sends to the national convention will be joined by 25 unpledged PLEO delegates (14 members of the Democratic National Committee; 9 members of Congress, including both Senators and 7 U.S. Representatives; the governor; and former DNC chair Terry McAuliffe).[2]


Ballot access to the Presidential Democratic Primary is not automatic, and potential candidates must file a 5,000-signature petition from qualified voters, with at least 200 signatures from each of the state’s 11 congressional districts by December 12, 2019 to appear on the primary ballot.

The following candidates have met the requirements for ballot access.[3]
