In July 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. 

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 within the delegates’ congressional district on April 11, 2020. There are no district level alternates.
  3. 14 Party Leaders and Elected Officials (PLEOs) will be elected by the 68 district level delegates on April 25, 2020 at a central location in the state.
  4. On May 16, 2020, 23 at-large delegates and nine alternates will be elected by a quorum of the State Committee of the Democratic Party of Georgia.

Throughout fall of 2019, 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
