In August 2020, Georgia will join national Democrats in nominating the next President of the United States at the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Democratic Party of Georgia’s Delegate Selection Plan determines how Georgia’s delegates are selected, to ensure that we have a strong and diverse delegation that truly represents Georgia. 

All voting for Georgia’s delegates will be conducted virtually, either online or by phone.

The general components of the plan are as follows:

  1. Georgia is allocated 129 delegates, nine of whom will be alternates.
  2. 68 District-Level delegates will be elected via online voting within the delegates’ congressional district on May 23, 2020. There are no District-Level alternates.
  3. 14 Party Leaders and Elected Officials (PLEOs) will be elected via online voting by the 68 district level delegates on June 20, 2020.
  4. Also on June 20, 2020, 23 At-Large Delegates and nine alternates will be elected by the State Committee of the Democratic Party of Georgia via online voting.

The DPG will hold trainings in every congressional district on our delegate selection process, to  ensure that all communities are represented in Georgia’s delegation. More information on those trainings is available here
