Michigan Delegate Selection Plan

This is my understanding of the process.


District Delegates (82)

  • Make sure you are a registered Democrat

  • Determine the congressional district where you are registered

  • File Statement of Candidacy and Pledge of Support for Bernie by April 16, 2020 with the Michigan Democratic Party, 606 Townsend, Lansing, MI 48933, email or the party website.

  • Start organizing your friends and supporters to vote for you.

  • Show up with your supporters to vote in the 11:00 am May 16, 2020 caucus in your congressional district. All Democratic voters are eligible to attend and vote for the District Delegate candidates that filed by April 16, 2020.


At Large Delegates (27) At Large Alternate Delegates (10)

  • If you did not get elected as a District delegate you can try to become an At Large Delegate or an Alternate delegate.

  • File Statement of Candidacy and Pledge of Support for Bernie by May 15, 2020 with the Michigan Democratic Party, 606 Townsend, Lansing, MI 48933, email or the party website.

  • At-Large and Alternate delegates are elected by the State Central Committee (some members are elected at the Congressional district conventions) at a meeting on June 13, 2020.


PLEO Delegates (16)

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.

  • File Statement of Candidacy and Pledge of Support for Bernie by May 15, 2020 with the Michigan Democratic Party, 606 Townsend, Lansing, MI 48933, email or the party website.

  • PLEO delegates are elected by the State Central Committee (some members are elected at the Congressional district conventions) at a meeting on June 13, 2020.


Standing Committee (15) and Delegation Chair

15 Standing Committee members (5 each on the Credentials, Platform and Rules committees) and the Delegation Chair are elected by a quorum of Michigan’s National Convention Delegates on May 17, 2020. You don’t have to be a delegate or alternate to be elected.

Convention Pages (4)

Convention Pages are selected by the State Democratic Chair on June 13, 2020.
