Presidential Nominating Process


Every four years, the Democratic Party begins designing the Delegate Selection Rules and a resulting nominating process for the next presidential election.

While the Rules drafting process begins anew after each Presidential election, many norms and traditions carry over, including a rule that lets some states hold their nominating contest early, which in 2024 will be South Carolina, Nevada & New Hampshire, Michigan, and Georgia.

Democrats Abroad is hard at work crafting our Delegate Selection Plan, which will be the guiding document as we play our part in nominating our Party's 2024 nominees for President and Vice President of the United States. You can review a copy of our draft 2024 Delegate Selection Plan which was posted for public comment on our website on March 6, 2023, through April 5, 2023, 11:59 pm US Pacific.

You can review the FINAL DRAFT and its appendixwhich was distributed on April 15, 2023.
