WVDP Approves Delegate Selection Plan
The West Virginia Democratic Party approved its Delegate Selection plan at regularly schedule State Democratic Executive Committee meeting on April 25th 2015 in Charleston.
West Virginia will use a proportional representation system based on the results of the primary for apportioning its delegates to the 2016 Democratic National Convention.
Those wishing to become delegates to the national convention as district and at large delegates will file forms at the Democratic Party HQ starting on January 11th and ending at 5:00pm on May 10th.
West Virginia has an affirmative action plan that will ensure all West Virginia Democrats are included in the process. The first determining step of West Virginia’s delegate selection process will occur on May 10, 2016, with the state run primary.
The West Virginia Democratic Party will hold County Convention in April of 2016 to determine delegates to the state convention.
