WASHINGTON DEMOCRATS ANNOUNCE OFFICIAL DELEGATE ALLOCATION RESULTS FROM PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE | March 24, 2020
SEATTLE — Washington State Democrats congratulate both Vice President Biden and Senator Sanders on receiving pledged delegates from Washington’s first Democratic presidential primary. Nearly 1.6 million Democratic voters cast a ballot, resulting in 591,403 votes for Vice President Biden and 570,039 votes for Senator Sanders.
Those vote totals translate into 46 pledged delegates for Vice President Biden and 43 pledged delegates for Senator Sanders to the Democratic National Convention in July. As a reminder, Washington Democrats have shifted to an all-digital delegate selection process, but as has been true from the beginning of our primary, both presidential campaigns who received pledged delegates will retain the right of refusal over who is selected to fill each of their pledged delegate positions.
