Tennessee Democratic Presidential Primary Results
The Tennessee primary is one of fourteen Presidential primary contest held on what has come to be known as Super Tuesday. It traditionally takes place a few days after the South Carolina primary and marks the first time voters from multiple states cast ballots on the same day. Tennessee will send 64 pledged delegates to the Democratic National Convention which will be proportionally allocated among the candidates based off the percentage of votes they received.
Tennessee is one of a handful of states with multiple time zones, so voting will take place from 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. in the parts of the state in the Eastern Time Zone, and from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. in parts of the state in the Central Time Zone. Tennessee has an open primary, so anyone registered to vote, regardless of political affiliation, is eligible to participate. However, voters must affiliate with or declare their allegiance to the Democratic party in order to participate in the primary. Tennessee is one of 39 states that allows early voting and voters may cast an absentee ballot if they are able to provide a valid reason why they are unable to vote on the day of the primary.
A candidate must receive 15% or more of the vote in order to be considered a viable candidate and be awarded delegates.
