Maryland Delegate Selection Plan

This is my understanding of the process.


District Delegates (17) District level Alternates (7)

  • Make sure you are a registered Democrat

  • To become a district delegate get on the April 28, 2020 Primary Ballot.

  • Get and file a Declaration of Candidacy and Pledge of Support forms between January 7, 2020 and January 27, 2020, hours 8 am to 5 pm.

  • File in person at the State Board of Elections, 151 West St. Annapolis, MD 21401 or at the County Board of Elections in Charles, Frederick or Wicomico Counties.


At Large Delegates (17) At Large Alternate Delegates (7)

  • If you did not get elected as a District delegate you can try to become an At Large Delegate or an Alternate delegate. Between May 7 and May 14, 2020, file a Declaration of Candidacy and a Pledge of Support with the Maryland State Democratic Party, 275 West St., Suite 305, Annapolis, MD 21401.

  • At-Large and Alternate delegates are elected by the Maryland State Party Committee at an open meeting at 11:00 am on May 30, 2020.


PLEO Delegates (10)

You have to be eligible to be a PLEO delegate. PLEOs are eligible according to the following priority: big city mayors and state-wide elected officials (to be given equal consideration); state legislative leaders, state legislators, and other state, county and local elected officials and party leaders. Help Bernie by encouraging qualified Bernie supporting people to file to become PLEO delegates.

  • Between May 7 and May 14, 2020, file a Declaration of Candidacy with the Maryland State Democratic Party, 275 West St., Suite 305, Annapolis, MD 21401.

  • PLEO delegates are elected by the Maryland State Party Committee at an open meeting at 10:30 am on May 30, 2020.


Standing Committee (9) and Delegation Chair

9 Standing Committee members (3 each on the Credentials, Platform and Rules committees) and the Delegation Chair are elected by a quorum of Maryland’s National Convention Delegates on June 6, 2020. You don’t have to be a delegate or alternate to be elected.

Convention Pages (3)

Convention Pages are selected by the State Democratic Chair on June 6, 2020.
