I have the following questions, I think I know, but collectively, this blog knows way more than I do:
1. How many delegates are awarded to the Democratic Convention as a result of our February 5, 2008 primary?
2. Are the delegates awarded “proportionately” to the vote, as opposed to “winner take all”?
3. Are the delegates “pledged delegates” or free delegates?
I would love concrete information and links to answer what I know are basic questions. My understanding is that Massachusetts is a “proportional award” state, not a “winner take all state” – but I would love to hear back as to whether this is correct.
Also, I admit I am having trouble making sense of the relationship between the delegate-to-the-National Convention selection process and the primary election itself on the State Democratic Party Website, see: http://www.massdems.org/index2…
I note that the Massachusetts Democratic Party has reorganized its web site. Now, if I could only make sense of it!
