Take your first step
to become a delegate to the
Democratic National Convention
in Milwaukee the week of August 17

DPW’s’ Administrative Committee, with the approval of the DNC, voted to enact a number of changes to the process by which we will choose Wisconsin’s delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee. (As a reminder, the Democratic National Convention was recently moved to the week of August 17.)

These changes include:

  • All Tier 1 County and Tier 2 Congressional District Caucuses are transitioning from in-person events to virtual events.
  • Virtual county caucuses will be spread out between three dates: April 26 (the original date), May 3, and May 10. CD caucuses will remain on May 17.
  • DPW will assign county caucuses to a specific date no later than April 20.
  • Anyone who wishes to participate in a county caucus (either as a voter or a delegate candidate) is now required to pre-register for the virtual caucus by no later than 5:00 PM on April 17. Instructions to pre-register are below.
  • Caucuses will use electronic ballots rather than paper ballots.

We understand that these new processes for selecting delegates require internet access and the ability to use email which may be difficult for some members. These decisions were not made lightly, but due to the nature of the pandemic and the guidance from public health officials, the DPW Administrative Committee felt these actions ensured the most access to the process while prioritizing the health and safety of every caucus participant.

How to be a Delegate Trainings:

With important registration dates for delegates quickly approaching, DPW staff will hold daily webinar trainings from Wednesday, April 8 to Friday, April 17 for anyone interested in learning more about the delegate selection process and how the virtual caucus will run.
