Convention Delegate Elections
It is time to elect our district level delegates for the Democratic National Convention this summer. On Saturday April 16, we will hold delegate elections for the 4th and 7th Congressional Districts. It is too late to fill out an affidavit to become a delegate, but on April 16, you can vote for one of the candidates running to become one.
1. You must be a registered voter in the district where you are voting for a delegate
2. You must be a Democrat
3. You must declare which Presidential candidate you will elect delegates for, Clinton or Sanders. Once you declare, you may only vote for the delegates who want to represent that particular Presidential candidate.
