Election 2024 Delegate Tracker

America is halfway to a presidential rematch. Joe Biden became the presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party on Tuesday, when he surpassed the 1,968 delegates needed to secure the nomination with a win in Georgia. He faced nominal opposition, winning 22 of the first 23 states and territories and sweeping the delegates in at least 16 of them. Donald Trump was expected to clinch the Republican nomination later Tuesday.

Both nominations will be made official at this summer’s national party conventions. Candidates usually earn delegates based on their performance in a state’s primary or caucus. Republican delegate rules vary by state, but their system overall tends to favor frontrunners and makes it harder for trailing candidates to win delegates – particularly in later contests. Democrats award delegates proportionally in every state, making it easier for trailing candidates to pick up delegates.
