The Massachusetts Democratic Party has released its delegate selection plan for 2020 delegates attending the Democratic National Convention. (The DNC will be held in July 2020 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.)
See the plan (PDF) at:
Massachusetts will be represented by 114 delegates and 8 alternates at the 2020 DNC. Of this 114 delegates, 59 pledged delegates will be elected at the Congressional District caucus taking place in April next year. The remaining 55 delegates consist of at-large delegates, and unpledged or “super” delegates. The at-large delegates will be elected at the Democratic State Committee meeting in May of 2020.
The break down of the 59 pledged delegates and 8 alternates by Congressional District is as follows:
Framingham is in CD5 which is one of two districts receiving the highest number of delegates (8), plus 1 alternate.
The Affirmative Action sub-committee has approved the following goals to reach to ensure a diverse delegation accurately represents Massachusetts at the DNC.
|African-American||Hsipanic||Native American||Asian Am
|% in MA||8.1%||10.5%||1.0%||6.0%||8.0%||22.0%||9.0%|
The table shows for example that Asian-American-Pacific-Islanders are 6% of the Massachusetts population. This percentage sets a goal of trying to include 8 delegates of the AAPI demographic in the total delegation.
