Democratic National Convention (Milwaukee, Wisconsin)

August 17, 2020

This is the start date of the 2020 Democratic National Convention, to be held August 17-20, 2020 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

At this convention, delegates will adopt the 2020 Democratic Party Platform and select our nominees for President and Vice President of the United States.

The four delegates to the national convention from the 5th Congressional District will be selected Saturday, May 30, 2020 at a location to be determined. The allocation of the four delegates in the 5th CD between presidential candidates was determined based on the results of the March 10, 2020 presidential primary election in the 5th Congressional District. Bernie Sanders receives two national convention delegates and Joe Biden receives two national convention delegates.

Additional at-large delegates representing Washington State will be chosen at a meeting after the conclusion of the Washington State Democratic Convention in Tacoma in June 2020. The allocation of at-large delegates between presidential candidates was also determined based on the results of the March 10, 2020 presidential primary election in Washington State (statewide).
