Super Tuesday is the election day early in a United States presidential primary season (February or March) when the greatest number of U.S. states hold primary elections and caucuses. More delegates to the presidential nominating conventions can be won on Super Tuesday than on any other single day. Super Tuesday primaries and caucuses occur in many states from geographically and socially diverse regions of the country and typically represent a presidential candidate's first test of national electability. Candidates must therefore do well on this day to help secure their party's nomination. Convincing wins in Super Tuesday primaries have usually propelled candidates to their party's nomination.The particular states holding primaries on Super Tuesday have varied from year to year since each state selects its election day separately.
Tuesday is the traditional day for elections in the United States. The phrase Super Tuesday has been used to refer to presidential primary elections since at least 1976. It is an unofficial term used by journalists and political pundits.
In 2020, Super Tuesday will occur on March 3. Fourteen state primaries and the American Samoa caucuses will take place, amounting to 1344 pledged delegates—33.8% of the nationwide total.
