Raleigh – Today, the N.C. Democratic Party announced the process for selecting North Carolina delegates to attend the 2020 Democratic National Convention. Approximately 122 North Carolinians will be selected as delegates and will participate in nominating the next Democratic presidential candidate at the convention in Milwaukee next July.
The application to become a delegate will open on December 1, 2019, and will be available at ncdp.org/delegate-selection-for-2020. 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 North Carolina Democratic Party is committed to a selection process that builds a delegation that mirrors the diversity of our state. The Delegate Selection Plan outlines a process for electing an equal number of men and women and includes representation goals for African-American, Latino, Native American, AAPI, LGBTQ+, young (under 35), senior (over 65) and veteran delegates, as well as delegates with disabilities.
