1,683 Democratic caucuses will be held at more than 1,000locations. They start at 8 p.m.
EST and can last an hour or more. Thereare 44 delegates to the national conventionthatcan
be won through this process. Note: Eight more unpledged party leaders and elected officials
get to go straight to the national convention from Iowa ("superdelegates”).
Here's what happens on caucus night:
1. Supporters make the case for their candidates.
2. Caucus goers separate intogroups in corners or parts of the room for their candidates of
choice.
3. When the groups are formed, theelected chair adds up how many supporters are in each
cluster. Each candidatehas to meet a viability threshold of 15 percent.
4. If a candidate is determined not to be viable,that candidate's supporters have to choose
another candidate.
5. During the re-caucusing process, supporters from the viable candidates try to sway the
nonviable candidate's voters to their side.
6. Once the re-caucusing is settled and all remaining candidates are deemed viable, the
numbers are tallied.
