Sanders received 27.8 percent of the vote, according to the party.

The Wyoming Democratic Party canceled its in-person caucus due to the coronavirus pandemic and instituted ranked-choice voting conducted entirely by mail.

Voters were mailed a ballot and allowed to request a replacement by March 31. Ballots were due by April 17. 

Besides Sanders, six former candidates who had since dropped out of the race were also on the Wyoming ballot.  

Biden has secured endorsements from nearly all of his former opponents, including Sanders, as the party looks to unite behind Biden ahead of the November election.

Most of Biden’s campaign events have been canceled amid the coronavirus pandemic, forcing the campaign to shift to a digital focus.
