The North Carolina Democratic Party has opened the 2024 DNC Delegate Selection Process, a process for selecting North Carolina delegates to attend the 2024 Democratic National Convention. The full North Carolina Delegate Selection Plan, including public comment form, is available online here.
North Carolina has the 9th largest delegation in the nation, with 130 voting members. All but 14 of the delegates will be pledged to a candidate and the number allocated to each candidate is based upon the results of the “Super Tuesday” March 5, 2024, Presidential Primary Election.
Seventy-six (76) delegates representing each congressional district will be elected at District Conventions on April 27, 2024. Twenty-five (25) At-Large Delegates, 15 Pledged Party Leader and Elected Official (PLEO) Delegates, and 10 alternates will be elected at the State Convention on June 1, 2024. The remaining 14 delegates are Automatic Delegates, such as DNC members, Democratic members of Congress, and the Governor.
To become a delegate, voters must be a registered Democrat, submit a notice of candidacy, and engage with the party to actively seek support for their candidacy. Any registered Democrat is eligible to apply. The Delegate Selection Plan outlines a process for electing an equal number of men and women, with language to include North Carolina’s gender non-binary community, and includes representation goals for African-American, Hispanic, Native American, AAPI, LGBTQ+, young (under 35), senior (over 65) and veteran delegates, as well as delegates with disabilities.
The complete North Carolina Delegate Selection Plan is available here, along with information about upcoming online information sessions on the selection process.
