Democratic Party of Oregon announces delegate apportionment for 2020 DNC Convention

PORTLAND — Following record voter turnout last week, the Democratic Party of Oregon announced the number of delegates allocated to Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders.

Joe Biden Bernie Sanders Total
Congressional District 1 7 2* 9
Congressional District 2 5* 1* 6
Congressional District 3 8 4* 12
Congressional District 4 5* 2 7
Congressional District 5 6 1 7
PLEO 5 2 7
At-Large 10 3 13
Total 46 15 61
Alternates 4 1 5

Delegates were apportioned based on the best primary results as available on May 22nd, 2020, including precinct level results for counties that are split between multiple Congressional Districts.

*An asterisk indicates that the first delegate elected in this category must be female, in all categories delegates are slated alternating by gender, allowing nonbinary delegates to be slated should their vote require it.

The Democratic National Convention is where the Democratic Party officially nominates our Presidential Candidate, as well as approves the four-year national party platform. Oregon’s Delegates represent Oregon in this process and make sure that Oregonians have their voices heard.

More information on the delegate selection process, including the changes approved to accommodate social distancing requirements, can be found here.

DPO Announces New 2020 Delegate Selection Elections Due to COVID‑19

PORTLAND — The Democratic Party of Oregon voted overwhelmingly last week to revise their delegate selection plan for the 2020 Democratic National Convention to accommodate social distancing recommendations. The revised plan, which received final approval by the Democratic National Committee yesterday, does away with in-person nominating conventions and allows Oregon Democrats to hold a remote election — which includes Vote-by-Mail — to select delegates to the Convention in Milwaukee this summer.

The Democratic National Convention is where the Democratic Party officially nominates our Presidential Candidate, as well as approves the Party’s four-year national platform. Oregon’s Delegates represent Oregon Democrats in this process, making sure that their voices are heard. The new delegate selection plan has received the approval of both the Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders campaigns.

“The delegate nominating convention is a longstanding tradition for Oregon Democrats,” said Carla “K.C.” Hanson, Chair of the Democratic Party of Oregon. “However, we have to adapt in these unprecedented times. That is why we’ve established a safe and secure remote election process to choose Oregon’s delegates to the Democratic National Convention. We anticipate that this new process, which will allow any Oregon Democrat to vote remotely, will encourage more Democrats to participate.”

Registered Oregon Democrats who would like to participate in the delegate selection process can do so by completing an online form available at dpo.org/2020 by May 21st at 5:00 pm. They can choose to either run for a delegate position, vote for delegate candidates, or both. Those who register will begin receiving ballot instructions from the DPO beginning on May 27th. These ballots will be due June 12th at 5:00 pm, and results for the delegation will be announced as soon as feasible on the DPO’s website.

“We are less than 200 days away from the most important Presidential election in our lifetime,” said Hanson, who participated in the 2008 and 2012 Democratic National Conventions. “Voters across the country have seen enough from an inconceivably corrupt and inept White House and are desperate for real leadership. Participating in the process to make our presumptive nominee and his Vice Presidential pick official this August will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our Oregon Democratic delegates.”
