I started with Vote Smart's list but it was very outdated. Wikipedia's list was pretty good though I wanted have a secondary source. For that secondary source I used Green Paper's notes and then the National Conference of State Legislature's list. In the couple spots where it appeared there may have been discrepancies I tried to resolve them by searching the news, and ultimately I believe Wikipedia's list was just about fully accurate.
Anyway, in case anyone else is looking for this information, I'm publishing it here. And, FYI, is likely to change between now and January '08.
Also, my list has an extra column called "Influence". This is just an index I put together balancing # of delegates with how early the state votes. It's certainly not anything official, but it is helpful for me in determining the states for which I want to bother making predictions. Just for reference, there are 500 "influence points" total.
Finally, one last important note - a bunch of states are in the list twice. That's because they are deciding how to allocate a subset of their delegates on two different dates. (Trying to figure out the process by which the votes actually turn into delegate allocations is also a heck of a matter to try to figure out... [and a matter I leave as an exercise for the reader. :D]).
In any event, here are the current (tentative) dates for Republican '08 Presidential Primaries:
|Wyoming (A)||01/05/08||12||10||I think WY will ultimately go to being no earlier than 1/22. Curiously, the parties seem more upset with FL and SC than Wyoming|
|Iowa||01/14/08||41||30||I think IA may move earlier if WY does not move later|
|South Carolina||01/19/08||47||25||Parties want SC to move to a later date|
|New Hampshire||01/22/08||24||15||NH will likely move earlier if other states don't move later|
|Florida||01/29/08||114||35||Parties want FL to move to a later date|
Super Duper Tuesday
|West Virginia (A)||02/05/08||18||2.5|
|District of Columbia||02/12/08||19||5|
|Pennsylvania||04/22/08||74||10||I think PA will move their date to 2/12|
|West Virginia (B)||05/13/08||12||2.5|
|Oregon||05/20/08||30||2.5||I think OR will move their date to 2/5|
Note: the states Vote Smart (I believe) has incorrect dates for include: Wyoming, South Carolina, Maine, Minnesota, West Virginia, Washington, DC, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, and Oregon. I don't really fault them for having in correct dates though ... changing your primary date is what all the "cool states" are doing these days, and it's hard to keep up.
