Although the California Democratic Party (CDP) is a separate legal entity, delegates to the state convention and to the state executive board are granted to each county central committee as well as to each assembly district and to elected officials.
In addition, the CDP requires “gender equity” among delegates.
Gender, as defined by the CDP rules, is “self-identified female” (“Female”) or “other than self-identified female” (“Other”).
The DPCCC has no direct association with non-DPCCC delegates, but we are listing all delegates representing
any part of Contra Costa County here in the interest of transparency.

The list of all delegates are due to the CDP around the first week of February in odd-numbered years. This means that all delegates must be elected in January or before.
DPCCC delegates are selected at the reorganizational meeting in January of odd-numbered years. Any member of the DPCCC is eligible to run for delegate. The delegate selection process, however, is somewhat complicated. The complication has been built-in to ensure fairness and equity.
The committee first caucuses by supervisorial district. Within each district, the delegates are allocated based on the number of elected/appointed members on the committee plus one additional delegate. The districts conduct up to three rounds of selection. In the first round, all elected and appointed members are eligible. This is usually automatic as there are more delegate seats per district than there are elected/appointed members. In the second round, all club representatives and alternates are eligible. If any delegate seats are still available after the second round, then any associate members living in the district are eligible.
After the caucuses, the committee comes back together to review and confirm the results as well as to determine gender equity. The remaining six at-large seats are then up for selection with the number of seats per gender offered to ensure gender equity.
In 2019, the DPCCC had 35 seats to allocate. After the district caucuses, the six at-large seats were determined to be two self-identified females (traditionally "women") and four other than self-identified females (traditionally "men") for a total of seventeen (17) women and eighteen (18) men.
Eboard representatives are usually selected in the spring (April or May). In 2019, the DPCCC has 4 eboard seats available. Each DPCCC eboard member must already be a DPCCC delegate.
ADEM (Assembly District Election Meeting) delegates are elected by caucus within the assembly district in January of odd-numbered years. Any Democrat registered in the assembly district is eligible to run.
All interested Democrats must file a filing fee as well as a statement to the CDP in November or December of the prior year. (Filing fees may be waived.) Democrats within the assembly district then come together at a pre-determined location posted on the CDP website where they elect seven persons of each gender to be delegates to the state convention. From these fourteen (14), one person is elected to represent the assembly district on the eboard.
Other delegates are also eligible to run for the eboard seat. Basically anyone who has a delegate seat but is not a central committee delegate. It is rare for a none ADEM delegate to hold this eboard seat, but it is possible.
Each legislative, congressional, and statewide elected official is eligible to appoint delegates as are party officers. These are known as PLEO (Party Leaders and Elected Officials) appointments. The DPCCC will list the PLEO appointments once we are able to determine who they are. (It has generally been difficult for the DPCCC to obtain these appointment lists.)
