Thank you for your interest in joining us at the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee! The National Convention will be held July 13-16. Florida's Delegate Selection Plan has been approved by the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee and can be reviewed at the link below. The resources on this page are made available to those interested in running as a National Convention Delegate. 

How many people can be a Delegate?

Each Congressional District is allocated a limited amount of delegates to send to National Convention. You can find the allocation for your Congressional District here

Filing to be a Delegate

The filing period to run as a National Convention Delegate begins on February 3 and ends on March 7. The delegate filing form will be available on this page beginning on February 3, and must be competed and received at the state party office by 12:00pm Noon EST on March 7 to qualify.

It is important for Florida's delegation to be as diverse as our state. You can find Florida's Affirmative Action goals here.

Delegates will be elected at Congressional District Caucuses held on April 4 (with some Congressional districts also holding early voting on April 2).

April 4 Congressional District Caucuses

Congressional District Chairs determine the location of the Congressional District Caucuses. A list of Congressional District Chairs can be found here. The deadline for CD Chairs to determine the location of their caucuses is February 3. Once the locations have been determined, they will be published on this page.

How much does it cost?
