Texas sends the second-largest delegation to the Democratic National Convention, which will be held on July 13–16, 2020, at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Texas’ delegation is: 281 persons, 262 delegates and 19 alternates.
We do that in a presidential primary that will be held on “Super Tuesday” March 3, 2020. That is the same election where we nominate candidates for all offices from U.S. Senate to Constable. Candidates file to be on the ballot between November 9 and December 9, 2019 with the Texas Democratic Party.
Steps to become a delegate
STEP ONE: Pick who you wish to vote for in the March 3rd presidential primary
STEP TWO: Campaign, donate, work and organize for your candidate. The more votes they get, the more delegates they win, and the more likely you have a slot in your area to run for!
STEP THREE: Sign up to attend your county or senatorial convention on March 21, 2020.
