dem-2016MADISON, WI - The Democratic Party of Wisconsin (DPW) will be moving forward with its delegate selection plan for the 2020 Democratic National Convention today by providing the media with attached information on how interested Democrats can apply to become delegates. It is the goal of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin that its 2020 delegation reflect the diversity of its broad coalition.

The 2020 Democratic National Convention will be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on July 13 to 16th, 2020. The convention is a major event in the life of a political party and convention delegates are at the heart of all decisions made. In addition to voting for the party’s presidential and vice presidential nominee, delegates to the Democratic National Convention have an opportunity to vote on the party’s platform and resolutions, as well as the rules that govern the party.

Wisconsin will select a total of 90 delegates and 6 alternates for the 2020 convention.

Any qualified Wisconsin elector who subscribes to the beliefs of the Democratic Party is eligible to run for a spot as a convention delegate to the National Convention.

There are four types of delegates:

  • - Congressional District Level Delegates
  • - Pledged Party Leader and Elected Official Delegates (PLEO)
  • - At-Large Delegates
  • - Automatic Delegates

In addition, the party will elect members to serve on the convention’s three standing committees: Credentials, Platform and Rules.
