ANCHORAGE: Alaska Democrats have adopted a delegate selection plan for the 2020 Democratic National Convention. The Alaska Democratic Party’s Executive Committee adopted the delegate selection plan on May 2, 2019. The plan details how the ADP will select its delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention. This convention, where Democrats from across the country will select their presidential candidate will be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, from July 13-16, 2020.

“We are very excited about 2020,” said Casey Steinau, Chair of the Alaska Democratic Party. “We not only have a new and better delegate selection process, and a true primary system in the state, we have a slate of incredibly qualified, articulate, smart candidates who are ready and able to steer our country back on course.”

Any registered Democrat is able to participate in our presidential preference process. The 2020 process will feature electronic voting and in person voting at voting centers across Alaska. The first determining step of Alaska’s delegate selection process will culminate on April 4, 2020, with a Party-run primary. Alaska selected this date to participate regionally with Hawai’i.

Democrats across Alaska will gather by House District on April 18, 2019, to select party leaders for the next two years and elect Delegates to the State Convention. The Alaska Democratic Party State Convention will be held May 15-16, 2020 in Fairbanks, where delegates and alternates to the national convention will be selected.

Any voter who is a registered Democrat can participate in the presidential selection process. A voter may change their party registration to Democrat anytime between now and April 4, 2020 to be eligible to participate.

The entire delegate selection plan is available online, in addition to a one-page summary of the 2020 Alaska Presidential Preference party-run primary.
