Tabulation of Ballots

As stated on the ballot and beforehand on yesgp.org/2020:
--Per our by-laws, our 4 delegates will be allocated proportionally. They will allocated by a formula decided and approved by the caucus Steering Committee before voting began.

This formula is the same formula that the Youth Caucus, as validated by our election archives, has utilized for all caucus elections to distribute seats since 2016. In this instance, seats are PNC delegates.

Threshold calculation:
73 votes/(4 delegates + 1) + 1 = 73/5 + 1 = 14.6 + 1 = 15.6 votes needed
Threshold: 16 votes needed
Candidates must meet the vote threshold for one delegate to be allocated any delegates.

Round 1 Allocation:
Dario Hunter: 7 votes → 0 delegates
David Rolde: 0 votes → 0 delegates
Howie Hawkins: 51 votes → 3 delegates
No Nominee: 0 votes → 0 delegates
Uncommitted: 0 votes → 0 delegates
Write-In: 15 votes
--Write-In: Jesse Ventura: 15 votes  → 0 delegates

Overflow Allocation:
Hawkins: 51 votes  - 48 [16 threshold * 3] = 3 vote overflow

Final Delegate Count:
Hawkins → 4 delegates
