The 2020 Iowa Democratic presidential caucuses, the first nominating contests in the Democratic Party primaries for the 2020 presidential election, took place on February 3, 2020. Pete Buttigieg received the most state delegate equivalents (SDE), with one more than Bernie Sanders, who won the popular vote. Buttigieg became the first openly gay person to ever earn the most delegates in a state's presidential contest in the United States. The Iowa caucuses are closed caucuses wherein only registered members of a party are eligible to vote. Iowa awards 49 delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention, of which 41 are pledged delegates allocated on the basis of the results of the caucuses.
