Primary elections

Democratic presidential primary

The New Jersey Democratic presidential primary election took place on Feb. 5th, 2008.

Delegate count

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 two categories are pledged delegates

"At-Large Pledged" delegates are pledged delegates and are apportioned according to the statewide popular vote.
"PL/EO Pledged" delegates are also apportioned according to the statewide popular vote but are selected from a pool of party leaders and elected officials.

Delegates in the following five categories are all unpledged superdelegates

"Dem. Governor" delegates are sitting Democratic governors.
"Dem. Senator" delegates are sitting Democratic senators.
"DNC" delegates are party officials.
"Distinguished Party Member" delegates are former Democratic Presidents, Vice-Presidents, Speakers of the House, Minority or Majority leader of either house of Congress, Governors, or DNC Chairmen.
"Add-On Unpledged" delegates are [To Be Determined].

You may use this list to confirm that the correct number of delegates and superdelegates are represented on the table.
