Thank you and congratulations to everyone who voted in the First in the South Democratic Primary! You’ve completed the first step in the process of running to be a Delegate to the National Democratic Convention this summer in Philadelphia… but there’s more!

Now that you’ve voted, the second step is to attend your precinct reorganization meeting on March 12th at 10:00am and get elected as a delegate or alternate to your county convention. To find out where your precinct re-organization meeting is happening, contact your county chair whose information is listed on our website.

The third step is to attend your county convention and get elected as a delegate or alternate to the state convention. The dates, times, and locations for county conventions can be found on our website. If you have other questions, contact your county party chair.

After being elected as a delegate or alternate to thee state convention, the fourth step is filing a notice of candidacy form with SCDP by 5:00pm on April 4th. This form (click here).

Finally, the fifth step is attending the SCDP state convention on April 30th in Columbia and being elected as a delegate to the National Democratic Convention, either as a District Delegate (35), a Pledged Party Leader or Elected Official delegate (7), an At-Large Delegate (11) or an At-Large Alternate (4).

In all total, Secretary Clinton won 39 total delegates and Senator Sanders won 14. Neither Governor O’Malley nor Dr. Wilson were awarded any share of delegates. Click this link to find a chart that outlines how Congressional District, PLEO, and At-Large delegate shares were awarded and how many delegates from each category will be elected at the State Convention on April 30th.
