102 delegates (79 pledged, 23 unpledged)
to the Democratic National Convention

The 2020 Maryland Democratic primary will take place on June 2, 2020 following a rescheduling due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic in the United States.[1]

It was originally going to take place on Tuesday, April 28, 2020, as one of several states in the "Acela primary"[a] voting on the same date in the Democratic Party presidential primaries for the 2020 presidential election. The Maryland primary is a closed primary, with the state awarding 102 delegates, of which 79 are pledged delegates allocated on the basis of the results of the primary.


Maryland joins several northeastern states in holding primaries on the same date (April 28, 2020),[2] often dubbed the "Acela primary" in reference to the namesake Amtrak service.[3]

Voting is expected to take place throughout the state from 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. In the closed primary, candidates must meet a threshold of 15 percent at the congressional district or statewide level in order to be considered viable. The 79 pledged delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention will be allocated proportionally on the basis of the results of the primary. Of the 79 pledged delegates, between 6 and 8 are allocated to each of the state's 8 congressional districts and another 10 are allocated to party leaders and elected officials (PLEO delegates), in addition to 17 at-large pledged delegates. These delegate totals do not account for pledged delegate bonuses or penalties from timing or clustering.[4]

District-level national convention delegates will be voted on during the presidential primary. The state party committee meeting on Saturday, May 23, 2020 will vote on the 17 pledged at-large and 10 PLEO delegates to send to the Democratic National Convention. Should presidential candidates present fewer delegate candidates than the number of delegates they were allocated as a result of the presidential primary, then the additional delegates are also designated at this point. The 79 pledged delegates Maryland sends to the national convention will be joined by 23 unpledged PLEO delegates (13 members of the Democratic National Committee; 9 members of Congress, including both Senators and 7 U.S. Representatives; and former DNC chair Joe Andrew).[4]
