DelDems formally adopt draft delegate selection plan for 2024 Democratic National Convention
NEW CASTLE - The Delaware Democratic Party has formally voted to adopt a draft of its delegate selection plan for the 2024 Democratic National Convention. The plan has now been submitted to the Democratic National Committee's Rules & Bylaws Committee for final approval.
The plan details the Delaware Democratic Party's commitment to a fair, accessible, and transparent process that ensures that Delaware's 2024 Democratic National Convention delegation reflects the Party locally.
Delaware is slated to select 34 total delegates and two (2) alternates for the Democratic National Convention. In addition, Delaware will send three (3) convention pages and three (3) standing committee members to next summer's Democratic convention. 17 of Delaware's delegate slots are open to any local registered Democrat. The remaining Convention Delegates are automatically included as members of the delegation and include Delaware's DNC members, U.S. Congressional delegation, and Governor.
All local registered Democrats are encouraged to participate in the process, which will begin fielding applications in early 2024. Through next Winter and Spring, the state and local parties will host a series of public caucuses and meetings to decide on Delaware’s delegation. Rep. District level caucuses will take place in February to select electors to the State level caucus. On May 4, 2024, electors will gather in Dover for the 2024 Delegate Selection Caucus. Those selected as delegates will travel to Chicago, Illinois for the 2024 Democratic National Convention where the Party will formally make its nomination for President.
