Delegate Selection Plan and Affirmative Action Plan for the 2016 Democratic National Convention

The following link has the proposed plan for 2016 delegate selection process.

This plan is not final until after the DNC approves it.

Comments must be in writing and submitted to the address on the front of the plan: or by mail to:

Plan Comments, 4818 E Ben White Blvd., Ste 104, Austin TX 78741

PS:   The affirmative action goals for representation are on page 30.

The SDEC has adopted a ratio of 175 gubernatorial votes equals one delegate to the state convention with no alternates (meaning more delegates with all having a vote instead of half the delegation as delegates and half as alternates).
