The Nebraska Democratic Party (NDP) has approved its 2020 Delegate Selection Plan (DSP) to send delegates to the Democratic National National Convention in Milwaukee, July 13-16, 2020.
The NDP worked with partners across the state and from every community to create a process where every Nebraskan had a chance to be heard as we gear up for 2020.
To ensure fairness and inclusivity in the process of finalizing the DSP, the NDP opened up the draft of the plan for public comment during the 30-day comment period, which ended April 19.
The plan was then revised and approved by the NDP State Executive Committee for submission to the Democratic National Committee for review and approval.
“Democrats are continuing to organize to take back the White House in 2020,” said NDP Executive Director Jim Rogers. “Reaching out into communities across the state will ensure we build the coalition to win up and down the ballot. This document helps provide the roadmap to success that runs through our Primary in May and onward to the nomination in Milwaukee in July.”
Highlights of the DSP:
–Nebraska’s delegates will be apportioned proportionally based off the results of the May 12, 2020 Presidential Primary.
–Nebraska would be allocated a total of 36 delegates and two alternates, including:
–Twenty-two District-Level Delegates
–Two District-Level Alternates
–Four Automatic Delegates
–Three Pledged Party Leader & Elected Officials Delegates
–Seven At-Large Delegates
–Nebraska is allocated a total of three DNC Standing Committee Members (one member for each DNC Standing Committee) which will be selected at the NDP State Convention.
–Nebraska’s five Presidential Electors will be selected at the NDP State Convention.
