NHDP State Committee Approves Delegate Selection Plan

Concord, N.H. - Yesterday, the New Hampshire Democratic Party State Committee unanimously approved the delegate selection plan for the 2020 Democratic National Convention. This delegate selection plan includes specific programs designed to increase outreach and inclusion. These programs will educate and encourage members of historically underrepresented groups to participate in the delegate selection process.

NHDP Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement:

"The NHDP State Committee's unanimous approval of our 2020 delegate selection plan clearly demonstrates our commitment to representation and inclusion. While Trump and his Republican Party continue to promote and accept racist rhetoric, New Hampshire Democrats are working hard to ensure that everyone has a seat at the table. This plan shows the stark differences between our two parties and is just one of the many reasons why we'll take back the Oval Office come November 2020."

At the 2020 Democratic National Convention, the New Hampshire Democratic Party will have 33 delegates and 2 alternates, with the delegates evenly divided between men and women. The plan also includes language on the inclusion of gender nonbinary delegates. The 33 delegate positions break down as follows: 16 elected District-Level delegates, 5 elected At Large delegates, 3 elected Party Leader and Elected Official delegates, and 9 Automatic delegates who shall not have a vote on the 1st ballot. In addition, there will be 2 At-Large alternates.
