Reading the Map:
As was the case with the maps from past cycles, the earlier a contest is scheduled in 2020, the darker the color in which the state is shaded. Texas, for instance, is a deeper shade of blue in March than New Mexico is in June. States that are bisected vertically are states where the state parties have different dates for their caucuses and/or primaries. The left section is shaded to reflect the state Democratic Party's scheduling while the right is for the state Republican Party's decision on the timing of its delegate selection event (see Arizona). This holds true for states -- typically caucus states or states that have canceled contests -- with a history of different dates across parties.

Marked up version of the calendar
(Accounts for changes made to the calendar from 2016-2020)

Reading the Map:
As was the case with the maps from past cycles, the earlier a contest is scheduled in 2016, the darker the color in which the state is shaded. Texas, for instance, is a deeper shade of blue in March than Montana is in June. There are, however, some differences between the earlier maps and the one that appears above.
  1. A number of caucus states have yet to select a date for the first step of their delegate selection processes in 2020. Until a decision is made by state parties in those states, they will appear in gray on the map.
  2. The states where legislation to move the presidential primary is active are two-toned with right-leaning diagonal stripes. One color indicates the timing of the primary according to the current law whereas the second color is meant to highlight the month to which the primary could be moved. 
  3. Other states -- the carve-out states and states with state laws providing guidance for setting a primary or caucuses date but no specific date or multiple specified dates -- are also two-toned with left-leaning diagonal stripes. In this case, one color (gray) represents the uncertainty of the primary or caucuses date now while the other color (or colors) highlight the options available to states or the most likely date for a contest in that state given the information we currently have. So, in New Hampshire, for instance, we know that the secretary of state in the Granite state will want to protect the first in the nation status enjoyed in the past. To maintain that position alone, New Hampshire could now conduct its precinct caucuses as late as some time in early February 2020.  
  4. States that are bisected vertically are states where the state parties have different dates for their caucuses and/or primaries. The left section is shaded to reflect the state Democratic Party's scheduling while the right is for the state Republican Party's decision on the timing of its delegate selection event (see Kansas). This holds true for states -- typically caucus states -- with a history of different dates across parties but which also have not yet chosen a contest date.

Reading the calendar:
  1. Note that if you click on the state name in the calendar below, the link will take you to the relevant section of the state's law or party's bylaws covering the date of the primary or caucus.
  2. Links to discussions of 2016-2018 state-level legislation addressing the dates of future presidential primaries have also been added below the state name in the calendar.
  3. Markers have also been added indicating whether legislation has become law or has died at some point in the legislative process. 
  4. The bracketed numbers [+x or -y] refer the number of days the primary or caucuses have moved relative to where the previous statute scheduled the contest or, where noted, how far a state contest has moved relative to its position on the calendar in 2016.
  5. Permanently underlined states indicate states with tentative calendar dates. These are primarily carve-out states in February, but include a handful of other states where current state law sets a particular date or date selection protocol that may change.
