11 delegates (6 pledged, 5 unpledged)

The 2020 Guam Democratic caucuses are tentatively scheduled to take place on May 2, 2020, in the Democratic Party presidential primaries for the 2020 presidential election. The Guam caucuses are a closed caucus, with the territory awarding 11 delegates, of which 6 are pledged delegates allocated on the basis of the results of the caucuses.

Procedure[edit]

When the Guam Democratic Party published its draft delegate selection plan on July 7, 2019, it specified a May 2 date for the 2020 caucuses; this date is yet to be finalized.[1]

Voting is expected to take place between 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. In the closed caucuses, candidates must meet a threshold of 15 percent across the territory to be considered viable. The 6 pledged delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention will be allocated proportionally on the basis of the results of the caucuses. Of the 6 pledged delegates, all 6 are at-large pledged delegates.[2]

The 6 pledged delegates Guam sends to the national convention will be joined by 5 unpledged PLEO delegates (4 members of the Democratic National Committee and nonvoting delegate Madeleine Bordallo).[2]
