The first half of 2020 will shape the upcoming election at breakneck speed.
While it seems like all candidates have been campaigning non-stop for the last four years, the next few months will whittle down the Democratic primary field and the most important issues to voters will surface.
Keeping up with political discourse is difficult; planning other types of content around election noise can be even harder. To help with story timing, we’ve compiled a list of key dates that are expected to dominate news cycles.
Below is a timeline of major upcoming events related to the 2020 presidential election for the first half of the year.
This month is a major turning point in the election cycle with first-in-the-nation caucuses and primaries interspersed amongst three Democratic debates.
Following a heavy-hitting month of debates, a deluge of delegates is up for grabs in March.
If a clear candidate has not yet emerged by this point, April’s primaries will offer the final opportunity to significantly sway the delegate count.
With only a handful of primaries and caucuses throughout the month, May leads the voting wind-down.
This month marks the end of Democratic primary season, with both national conventions coming up later in the summer.
Some dates are tentative or subject to change. Check out an interactive election calendar like this one to stay on top of the latest updates.
