The Delegates

Total delegates (blue for Democrats and red for Republicans), along with poll closing times, are listed with each state. All Democratic delegates are distributed proportionally, though candidates must receive at least 15 percent of the vote to qualify. A small number of delegates in each state will be determined by party leaders and elected officials at a later date. Democrats call them superdelegates; Republicans refer to them as unpledged delegates.
