With the presidential primaries around the corner – the first one being the Iowa Caucuses on February 3, 2020 — I want to remind you about the Delegate Selection process and the California Democratic Party (CDP)’s outreach plan.
As leaders of the CDP, you are uniquely positioned to inform and mobilize potential delegates. We want to ensure that any Democrat who may be interested in becoming a delegate receives all the necessary information to do so. Please use your networks to help us spread the word within your communities and with our partner organizations.
In any correspondence, you send out (email or otherwise) and any meeting you host or attend, please mention the delegate selection process. You may review the CDP’s Delegate Selection Plan and other important information on the delegate selection process on our website here: cadem.vote/NationalConvention
Our website will be updated with additional information as we get closer to the March 3, 2020 primary.
Of a total of 494 delegates for California, 415 are up for grabs. On April 19, 2020, congressional district caucuses will be held in each CD by each qualified presidential candidate (271 delegates to be selected) and the delegation meeting is on May 17, 2020, where the 54 PLEOs and 90 At-Large Delegates are confirmed. To qualify to receive delegates in a CD, a presidential candidate must get 15% or more of the March 3 primary vote in that CD.
Remember, when a Democrat files with the CDP to run to be a district-level delegate (January 6, 2020 – March 3, 2020), they must file as committed to a specific candidate. Therefore, presidential campaigns will also be doing their part to mobilize and recruit registered Democrats to run and participate in caucuses on April 19, 2020.
Only registered Democrats may run or participate in the April 19, 2020 caucuses. However, anyone may re-register as a Democrat on site.
Kathy Bowler, Executive Director

DEMOCRATS IN ACTION: The Democratic Party of CCC is the voice of over 300,000 registered Democrats in Contra Costa County. We support issues that protect the safety net for working families, children, immigrants, our seniors, LGBTQ community and those that have been disenfranchised by institutional racism and discrimination. We speak out when we see injustice.
We are dedicated volunteers working with our allies to elect Democrats, pass effective legislation and empower our democratic clubs and community to take action. Our job as Democrats requires a multi-faceted approach. At the national, state and local level, we must Resist Trump’s Executive Orders. Locally, we must Build our Party by registering voters, support grass-roots organizing efforts, empower our Democratic Clubs, and Get Out the Vote (GOTV). We must “Build the Bench” for 2020 & 2022:
Let’s Lace Up Those Shoe’s, Make Some Noise and Organize. We are Democrats in Action.
