Every four years, Democrats Abroad (DA) sends a delegation to the Democratic National Convention to formally choose our Party’s nominee for president. For the 2020 presidential cycle, it is a major goal of DA to elect a diverse group of elected delegates which reflects our Party’s membership – this includes DA members of Hispanic heritage. Any DA member who is willing and able to travel to Milwaukee, Wisconsin in mid-July of 2020 is eligible to run as a delegate.
All Hispanic-American DA members, and especially all Hispanic-American caucus members, regardless of where you are living in the world, are strongly encouraged to consider running for a position among DA’s delegation to the Democratic National Convention. To cast a vote for the Democratic nominee for President of the United States is indeed a great honor and one in which Hispanics within Democrats Abroad should be present. There will be mass media coverage in Milwaukee and several countries will be broadcasting the event due to the heightened political interest in seeing who will face Donald Trump in the General Election.
The application process to begin the delegate process begins March 24, 2020. If you are interested in running as a delegate, be on the lookout for more information in the coming months. Please do not hesitate to send a message to HispanicCaucus@democratsabroad.org should you have further questions on this matter.
