US CITIZENS LIVING ABROAD: APPLY TO BECOME A DELEGATE TO THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION

Following the 2016 Global Presidential Primary, Democrats Abroad will hold a combination of regional and global Caucus meetings to choose delegates to send to the Democratic National Convention. These meetings will be held in Berlin on May 13 and 14, 2016. You may attend in person or by video conference call. Our Global Convention and Platform session will be held in Berlin on May 14 and 15, 2016.

Democrats Abroad will send a total of 21 delegates to the Democratic National Convention held in Philadelphia, July 2016. Eight of these delegates are our Members on the Democratic National Committee, Democrats Abroad's superdelegates.

In addition to 13 elected pledged delegates, Democrats Abroad will also send to Philadelphia: one or more alternates, one member for each of the three Convention standing committees (Credentials, Platform, and Rules), six Democratic National Committee Members-elect and a page.

To run for delegate to the Democratic National Convention, overseas Americans should fill out the candidacy form and submit it online. Find the form here and more instructions here
