Democratic presidential primary
The New Jersey Democratic presidential primary election took place on Feb. 5th, 2008.
- See also the 2008 federal election calendar (U.S.) and the embeddable Google calendar of the presidential primary dates and the congressional primary dates.
This chart shows the delegates to the Democratic National Convention in August 2008, who will elect the Democratic nominee for president. Listed are "pledged delegates" - those who were elected through the state's caucuses or primaries - and the "superdelegates" - those who are delegates by virtue of their party or elected office.
Delegate allotments for At-Large and PL/EO delegate types are both based on statewide totals. Therefore, the statewide totals need only be listed in the 'At-Large' row

Delegates in the following five categories are all unpledged superdelegates
- "Dem. Governor" delegates are sitting Democratic governors.
