Ohio Dems Announce Sites For Pre-Primary Caucuses To Elect Convention Delegates

Ohio Democrats Will Hold 16 Congressional District Caucuses on Tuesday, Jan. 7

COLUMBUS – The Ohio Democratic Party will host 16 congressional district caucuses across the state on Tuesday, Jan. 7, to elect 89 district-level delegates and eight alternates to represent Ohio at the 2020 Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee.

“Ohio Democrats are clearly fired up for 2020 and excited about our field of presidential candidates,” said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper. “Nearly 2,000 Ohioans have already filed to run for delegate and represent the Buckeye State at next summer’s Democratic National Convention, where we will formally elect our nominee to defeat Donald Trump. The deadline to run for convention delegate is less than a month away, and we encourage anyone who wants to be a part of this unforgettable experience to apply now.”

To apply to run for delegate, text DELEGATE to 90975 or go to go.ohiodems.org/delegate.

The deadline to apply to run for district-level delegate is Tuesday, Dec. 31. The results of Ohio’s presidential primary on March 17 will determine the number of delegates each candidate is allocated in each congressional district and statewide.

Ohio will have a total of 153 convention delegates and 11 alternates, evenly divided between men and women, with diversity goals for African Americans, Hispanic/Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, veterans and young people (age 18-36).
