Texas Democratic Presidential Primary Results
The Texas 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. Texas will send 228 pledged delegates to the Democratic National Convention which will be proportionally allocated among the candidates based off the percentage of votes they received. The state has the third largest number of delegates awarded in the country.
Polls are open between 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM local time on Tuesday, March 3, 2020. Texas is one of a handful of states that has more than one time zone, so polls will close one hour apart from each other in certain parts of the state. Texas has an open primary, meaning anyone registered to vote, regardless of political affiliation, is eligible to participate. Texas 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.
