DNC Delegate Selection

2024 Arizona Delegate Selection Plan

Starting February 20th, 2024, Arizona Democrats will begin to elect delegates for the Democratic National Convention in Chicago, Illinois. Delegates are representatives of the Arizona Democratic Electorate and will represent our state at the National Convention — nominating candidates for President and Vice President, and adopting the national party platform.

  • Arizona will have 85 total delegates (plus 6 alternates) at the national convention in 2024. Our Delegate Selection Plan outlines how those delegates will be determined.
Get Involved

How can you participate? There are four important steps to be part of this process:

  • Vote in the Presidential Preference Election on Tuesday, March 20th, 2024. Any registered Arizona Democrat can participate by voting early, voting by mail, or voting on Primary Election Day.
  • Following the Presidential Preference Election, District-level delegates shall be elected at a congressional district level election on Saturday April 20, 2024.
  • On Saturday, May 18th, 2024 we will host the State Convention where Party Leaders and Elected Officials (PLEOs) At-Large, and Alternate delegates will be elected for the national convention.
  • Delegates will attend the Democratic National Convention from Monday, August 19th- Thursday, August 22nd in Chicago! Here they will nominate the Democratic Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates and adopt the national party platform.
