2016 Democratic National Convention

The 2016 Democratic National Convention will be held the week of July 25th – 28th in Philadelphia, PA.

The process to select Florida’s delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, PA will work as follows:

1. The results of Florida’s March 15, 2016 presidential primary election will be used to apportion delegates to the national convention. 

2. On May 7, 2016, grassroots Democrats from each of Florida’s 27 congressional districts will meet in congressional district caucuses to elect 135 district-level delegates to the Democratic National Convention. 

3. Following the congressional district caucuses, the Florida Democratic Party will hold a special meeting in Orlando, Florida, May 21, 2016, where the district-level delegates will meet to select 27 Pledged Party Leader and Elected Official (PLEO) Delegates, 45 At-Large Delegates, and 17 At-Large Alternates to the Democratic National Convention. 

By ensuring all Democrats have a voice in the national convention, this Delegate Selection and Affirmative Action Plan will ensure that the Florida Democratic Party delegation will truly represent the tremendous diversity of Florida and the Democratic Party.
