Delegates to Democratic Convention July 25th- 28th

2,383 needed to win nomination

As of June 8th-

Hillary Clinton

Earned by votes- 2,203
Declared Superdelegates- 574

Bernie Sanders

Earned by votes 1,828
Declared Superdelegates 48

Doing the math, Hillary needs only 180 superdelegates to clinch the nomination. Bernie needs 455.

Superdelegates are unpledged Democratic party leaders who are free to support any candidate. The majority of the 714 superdelegates have declared support for Mrs. Clinton.


The only way Bernie can get the Democratic nomination is by way of superdelegates. Many are already pledged to vote for Hillary, but they are allowed to change their vote at the convention in July. This is how Obama received the nomination 8 years ago; many superdelegates changed their plan and voted for him.

The superdelegates from your state will listen to you. With the link above, one email will reach every Clinton superdelegate from your state. There is a space to put a message of your choice. You can even write them every week, with a new message. Urge your friends and neighbors to do the same. http://www.lobbydelegates.com/delegates.php

Here is a sample letter- people are welcome to use part or all of it, or design their own.

Dear xx,

As you cast your vote at the Democratic Convention, please consider:
