American Samoa caucuses (previously held on March 1, 2016)
Northern Mariana Islands caucuses (previously held on March 12, 2016)
Wyoming caucuses (previously held on April 9, 2016): The state party initially via its draft plan proposed a party-run caucus for March 2020, then shortly considered moving it to April 18, but may have the option of replacing it with a party-run primary (as a government-run primary is not an option in the state). The final decision setting the format and date will be communicated via an updated plan in the summer of 2019.
Guam caucuses (previously held on May 7, 2016)
United States Virgin Islands caucuses (previously held on June 4, 2016)
The 57 states, districts, territories, or other constituencies with elections of pledged delegates to decide the Democratic presidential nominee, currently plan to hold the first major determining step for these elections via 49 primaries and 6 caucuses (Iowa, Nevada and four territories), while two states (Wyoming and Maine) have not yet decided their election format - as their state parties currently consider approving last minute changes to their earlier drafted state delegate selection plans. The number of states holding caucuses decreased from 14 in the 2016 nomination process to so far only two in 2020.
