National Delegate Filing Deadline Extended

The South Carolina Democratic Party State Executive Committee met today.  Since several county conventions are scheduled to meet this weekend, the Executive Committee voted to extend the filing deadline for individuals who plan to run for Delegate to August 2020 Democratic National Convention to Monday, May 11 by 5 p.m.

No filing can be accepted after that time for any reason.  

To run for national Delegate, you must have voted in the Presidential Primary, attended your precinct meeting, and have been a delegate or alternate to your county convention, and you must be an elected delegate or alternate to the State Convention.
You may run for more than one category of Delegate.   If you wish to run for an At-Large Delegate position you must have signatures of 10 State Convention Delegates to accompany your filing form or you may pay a $50 filing fee.  Due to COVID-19, we have created an Google form that will allow you to submit the names of 10 State Convention Delegates to satisfy the signature requirement.You can access the Google form by clicking this link.

Joe Biden will receive 39 Delegates and 4 Alternates from South Carolina. Bernie Sanders will receive 15 Delegates and 1 Alternate.  

We hope you are safe and healthy.
