Delagates to Democratic National Convention

The DPO has announced that Oregon will have 74 delegates and five alternates to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, July 25-29. Forty-one delegates were elected at the congressional district mini-conventions, and 20 will be elected at the state convention. Thirteen “super delegates” will be automatically selected because they are elected officials or members of the DNC and are not required to be pledged to any candidate.  

If not elected at the mini-convention in Klamath Falls, prospective candidates to be delegates to the national convention will have the opportunity to run for 20 positions in the state convention at Pacific Northwest Carpenters Institute, 4222 NE 158th Ave., Portland, OR 97230, on June 18th.
