Delegate Information Session

Ever wonder how the delegates that select the Democratic Party Presidential

Candidate get selected? Come find out!

The Democratic Party of Illinois wants to engage Democrats across Illinois in the process of selecting our next President – someone who better reflects the values of our country and the diversity of the Democratic Party. That’s where you come in!

They are holding 20 informational sessions across the state to educate Democrats on the process of selecting delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee next July.

A delegate plays a significant role by representing Illinois at the Convention and helping select the Democratic presidential nominee. Delegates also help shape the Democratic Party’s platform and policies. For the 2020 Democratic Convention, Illinois has been allocated 184 delegates and 13 alternate delegates.

You will hear from representatives of the Democratic Party of Illinois as well as other state and local Democratic leaders.
