    "The rules for the 2012 Democratic National Convention call for the following formula to be used in determining the allocation of delegate votes to each state and jurisdiction sending a delegation to the Convention:

    Each state plus the District of Columbia is to be assigned a number of Base delegate votes based on an "Allocation Factor" multiplied by 3,700 (the optimum minimum size of a Democratic National Convention as determined by the Democratic National Committee): a state's (or D.C.'s) "Allocation Factor" being a decimal fraction arrived at through a calculation involving the following factors-

    the state's (or D.C.'s) popular vote for the Democratic candidate for President in the three Presidential Elections just previous to the Convention (in this case: 2000, 2004, and 2008). This is the "State's Democratic Vote" [SDV].
    the total popular vote for the Democratic candidate for President in the three Presidential Elections just previous to the Convention. This is the "Total Democratic Vote" [TDV].
    the state's Electoral Vote [SEV] and
    the total Electoral Vote [TEV] (538)
    The formula for determining a given state's (or D.C.'s) "Allocation Factor" [AF] is:

    AF = ½ × ( ( SDV ÷ TDV ) + ( SEV ÷ 538 ) )
    [2012 Call for the Democratic Convention I.B.]

    The number of Base delegate votes assigned to a state is AF × 3,700.
