Concord, N.H. - Today, the New Hampshire Democratic Party announced that interested Granite Staters can now file their statements of candidacy with the New Hampshire Democratic Party to run for delegate to the 2020 Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee. At the 2020 Democratic National Convention, the New Hampshire Democratic Party will have 33 delegates and 2 alternates. New Hampshire Democrats place an emphasis on diversity with specific goals for African American, Latinx, Asian American and Pacific Islander, LGBTQ+, disabled, and young delegates - as well as gender diversity. 16 of the 33 total delegates are elected at the district-level caucuses. These caucuses will take place on January 25th - with one caucus for each presidential campaign in each of New Hampshire’s two congressional districts. "Our delegate selection plan ensures that everyone has a seat at the table as we head into the most important election of our lifetime. This plan codifies the values that connect all Democrats, particularly our shared emphasis on inclusion and acceptance," said NHDP Chair Ray Buckley. “Being a delegate to the national convention is a unique opportunity, and we look forward to bringing a diverse group of Granite Staters with us to Milwaukee to nominate the next president of the United States.” Candidates for district-level delegate must file their statement of candidacy designating their singular presidential preference and a signed pledge of support for the presidential candidate with the State Party at 105 N. State St, Concord, NH by 5:00 pm on January 10, 2020. For an FAQ on running for district-level delegate, click here.
