George W. Bush

The 2000 United States presidential election in Delaware took place on November 7, 2000, part of the 2000 United States presidential election in all 50 states and D.C.. Voters chose three representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Delaware was won by Vice President Al Gore by a 13.1% margin of victory. From 1952 to 1996, it gave the winning presidential candidate its electoral votes every single time. Gore won only one of Delaware's three counties, but he won New Castle County with almost 60% of the vote[citation needed], and was able to carry the state because of the county's large population. Also, Bush won the other two counties, but with very small margins of victory[citation needed]. This was also the first time since 1948 that Delaware would back the losing candidate in a presidential election. From 1892 through 1996, Delaware voted for the president-elect every time except for 1916, 1932 and 1948. This would later be repeated when Delaware supported the losing Democratic candidates John Kerry in 2004, and Hillary Clinton in 2016.

By congressional district

Due to the state's low population, only 1 congressional district is allocated. This district, called the At-Large district, because it covers the entire state, and thus is equivalent to the statewide election results.

District Bush Gore Representative
At-large 41.9% 55.0% Mike Castle


Technically the voters of Delaware cast their ballots for electors: representatives to the Electoral College. Delaware is allocated 3 electors because it has 1 congressional district and 2 senators. All candidates who appear on the ballot or qualify to receive write-in votes must submit a list of 3 electors, who pledge to vote for their candidate and his or her running mate. Whoever wins the majority of votes in the state is awarded all 3 electoral votes. Their chosen electors then vote for president and vice president. Although electors are pledged to their candidate and running mate, they are not obligated to vote for them. An elector who votes for someone other than his or her candidate is known as a faithless elector.

The electors of each state and the District of Columbia met on December 18, 2000[2] to cast their votes for president and vice president. The Electoral College itself never meets as one body. Instead the electors from each state and the District of Columbia met in their respective capitols.

The following were the members of the Electoral College from the state. All were pledged to and voted for Gore and Lieberman:[3]

  1. Michael Begatto
  2. Margaret Rose Henry
  3. Ruth Ann Messick
