Make Your Voice Heard in the California State Democratic Party
Local delegates are important voices in shaping the direction for the California Democratic Party. Delegates are elected from each assembly district in the state every two years. The next round of election meetings is coming in January. Here’s what you need to know if you’re interested in voting in delegate selection.
The meetings where delegates are selected are called Assembly District Election Meetings or ADEMs. Each Assembly District elects 14 people to represent them as delegates to the California Democratic Party’s annual convention. These delegates are also known as members of the Democratic State Central Committee. They vote on Party endorsements, resolutions, internal leadership elections and other matters. Many participate in CDP committees and caucuses.
At each meeting, seven “self-identified female” and seven “other than self-identified female” delegates will be elected. Voters will also elect one person from that group of 14 to represent that district as a member of the CDP Executive Board, who is expected to attend additional meetings around the state each year to vote on State Party business.
The regular spring convention will be May 31-June 2 in San Francisco, with a second convention likely in November due to the early primary election in March 2020.
