Run for DNC

The Democratic National Convention is just a few short months away.
It will be held in Chicago, IL from August 19th – 22nd, and it’s our chance to send delegates that embody New Mexico’s beautiful diversity to represent us there. New Mexico gets to send 45 delegate representatives, and you can be one of them!

You can view all of the details about what to expect, who can be a delegate, as well as the official press release from the Democratic Party of New Mexico website.
Here is a very helpful slideshow on the process, timeline, estimated costs, etc.

What you need to know:
There are two different kinds of delegates.

  • One is the Post Primary Delegate, which is the County Level Delegate.
  • The second is the DNC Delegate, which is the State Level Delegate, and there are several types of these:
    • District Level
    • At-Large (Statewide)
    • Alternates
    • PLEO – Party Leaders and Elected Officials.

In order to win to become a DNC Delegate, you must be active in the County and District Level elections before the State Level election.

So, let’s work backward.

For State Level At-Large, Alternates, and PLEO Type Delegates:
You will need to be active in TWO elections!

Election #2:

  • When: June 22, 12:00pm
  • Where: Buffalo Thunder Resort, 30 Buffalo Thunder Trail, Santa Fe, NM 87506

Your electors will be the Post Primary Delegates elected at the County Level.

Election #1:
County Level election (follow instructions below.)

For District Level (Congressional District) Type Delegates:
You will need to be active in TWO elections!

Election #2:
Your election will take place at the District Convention hosted by the Democratic Party of New Mexico.

Who will vote for you?
Your electors (voters) are the county level Post Primary Delegates.
Bernalillo County will elect 124 Post Primary Delegates in Congressional District 1, and 33 in Congressional District 2.
These are the people who will vote for you at the District Convention on June 15.

How do Post Primary Delegates become electors, and what criteria do they need to meet?
Each county will host a Post Primary Convention and election prior to the District Level convention.

The Bernalillo County Convention will be hosted by the Democratic Party of Bernalillo County. This convention will include key speakers, but the election will not take place at this time.

Any registered Democrat in Bernalillo County can attend, and registration is open, so please register ahead!

**Late registration will occur from 5-6pm on June 8, but in an effort not to delay the convention, please pre-register now using the link above.

**You do not need to be present at the convention in order to participate in the election that will follow.

Election #1:
The Bernalillo County Post Primary Delegate Election will take place electronically from June 9-June 11.

Any registered Democrat in Bernalillo County can vote to elect the 124 Post-Primary Delegates in CD1 and 33 in CD2, but they must have been registered as a Dem in Bernalillo County by May 7, 2024 (30 days prior to the county convention date).

Any registered Democrat in Bernalillo County can run to become a Post-Primary Delegate. So, if you or someone you know is running to be a DNC Delegate, you will want to become a Post Primary Delegate so that you can vote for them on June 15!

Use this very simple form to declare yourself a candidate to a Post Primary Delegate OR simply to vote. You do NOT have to declare yourself a candidate in order to vote in this election. But you DO have to register. The form will allow you to do either or both.

If you are running to be a DNC Delegate, it is in your best interest to get as many people to participate and get elected in the County Level Post-Primary Delegate election as possible, so they can vote for you at the District Level election and send you to Chicago!

Good luck to all DNC Delegate candidates!!
