Super Tuesday - 5 February 2008

Presidential Campaign

On 5 February 2008, voters in 24 states and one territory head to their primary or caucus to cast a vote to nominate a candidate for the 2008 Presidential race. This table shows the type of nomination process (caucus or primary); whether the event is open or closed; and how many delegates are at stake and how they are allocated.

  • Closed Primary or Caucus - only registered members of a party may participate
  • Open Primary or Caucus - any registered voter may participate
  • Modified Primary or Caucus - Independents may declare party affiliation and participate

Note: For space conservation, Winner-Take-All is abbreviated as W-T-A. All delegates not allocated. Super-delegates not allocated. Estimates!
