An Analysis of the Democratic National Committee 2012 Call To Convention and Delegate Selection Rules
by Tony Roza

On Friday 20 August 2010, the Democratic National Committee approved the "Call for the 2012 Democratic National Convention" and the "Delegate Selection Rules for the 2012 Democratic National Convention".

February dates were set for the pre-window states of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina. All other states may begin on the first Tuesday in March 2012. Unpledged add-on delegates are eliminated, the number pledged delegates is increased, and states beginning their process later in the cycle receive bonus delegates. Neighboring states that begin on the same date may receive bonus delegates.

Using the Presidential primary dates established by currently-effective State statute, or- where the foregoing information could not be obtained- we used each state's 2008 delegate selection plan to estimate a corresponding date for 2012. The table on the link below indicates how each state would be affected by the new rules.

Democratic National Committee approves the 2012 Democratic Delegate Selection Rules
by Tony Roza

The Democratic National Committee approved the "Call for the 2012 Democratic National Convention" and the "Delegate Selection Rules for the 2012 Democratic National Convention" during their 20 August 2010 meeting in St. Louis.

In addition to the items mentioned yesterday's post, "Update on the Democratic 2012 Presidential Delegate Selection Rules", the party set dates for the pre-window states: Iowa-- may begin no earlier than 6 February 2012, New Hampshire-- 14 February 2012, Nevada-- 18 February 2012, and South Carolina-- 28 February 2012. All other states may begin Tuesday 6 March 2012.

There is a difference between the Democratic and Republican rules for the pre-window or carve-out states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada. The Republicans allow these states to begin on 1 February 2012. Both parties allow other states to begin on Tuesday 6 March 2012.

Update on the Democratic 2012 Presidential Delegate Selection Rules
by Tony Roza

On 19 August 2010, the Democratic Executive and Rules and Bylaws Committees met in St. Louis to review the draft "Call to the 2012 Democratic Convention". The full Democratic National Committee will consider the draft on 20 August.

The Democrats and Republicans have effectively adopted the same calendar for the 2012 Presidential nomination process: Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada begin in February. The remaining states begin no earlier than March.

The Democrats plan to award states beginning their process in April with a 10% bonus. For those beginning in May or June, a 20% bonus. States beginning their process after the third Tuesday in March 2012 and grouped clusters of 3 or more receive a 15% bonus.

The category of unpledged add-on delegates is eliminated for 2012. There were 81 add-ons in 2008.

The number of base pledged delegates is increased from 3,000 to 3,700 (before bonuses and territorial delegates).

Delegates from American Samoa, Guam, and Virgin Islands, and Democrats Abroad will have 1 delegate vote each. In 2008, these delegates cast a fractional vote. For example, in 2008 American Samoa had 9 delegate votes and 12 delegates.

An Analysis of the Republican Temporary Delegate Selection Committee's Recommendations for 2012
by TheGreenPapers.com Statff

On Friday 6 August 2010, the RNC approved the recommendations of the Temporary Delegate Selection Committee to reform the 2012 Presidential Nomination calendar.

The "carve-out" states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada may begin their process on 1 February 2012. All other states must wait until Tuesday 6 March 2012. In addition, some form of proportional delegate allocation is required for held events in March 2012.

Using the Presidential primary dates established by currently-effective State statute, or- where the foregoing information could not be obtained- we used each state's 2008 delegate selection plan to estimate a corresponding date for 2012. The table on the link below indicates how each state would be affected by the new rules.

Democratic Presidential Nomination 2012; MI CD 1 Republican; 1 change to the 2010 candidate list
by Tony Roza

DNC Member Frank Leone of DemRulz writes that the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee has finalize the draft Call to the 2012 Democratic Convention. The RBC and the DNC will vote on these proposals during their 19 to 20 August 2010 meeting in St. Louis.

  • The elimination of the unpledged add-on delegate category. In previous cycles, a jurisdiction (state, territory or commonwealth) was awarded 1 bonus delegate for every 4 of their DNC votes. There were 81 unpledged add-ons in 2008. (Charter Article 2)
  • Establish an award program based the state's first determining step (the date the state begins their process) and regional clustering.
    • No bonus for jurisdictions beginning their process in stage I (6 to 31 March).
    • A 5% bonus for jurisdictions that began in stage II (1 to 30 April) in 2008 and remain in that stage for 2012.
    • A 10% bonus for jurisdictions moving from an earlier date in 2008 to stage II (1 to 30 April) in 2012.
    • A 10% bonus for jurisdictions that began in stage III (1 May to 12 June) in 2008 and remain in that stage for 2012.
    • A 15% bonus for regional clustering of 3 or more states on the same date. The clustering can be in any stage and can be a mix of primaries and caucuses.
    • A 20% bonus for jurisdictions moving from an earlier date in 2008 to stage III (1 May to 12 June) in 2012.

Based on our estimated dates for the 2012 Primaries, Caucuses, and Conventions--

  • 5% (stage II): Pennsylvania (24 April 2012) would receive a 5% bonus.
  • 10% (stage III): Guam Territorial (5 May 2012); Indiana, North Carolina, West Virginia (8 May 2012); Oregon (15 May 2012); Arkansas, Kentucky (22 May 2012); Puerto Rico (3 June 2012); Montana, South Dakota (5 June 2012).
  • 15% (cluster): Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont (6 March 2012)

Reports state that Michigan is ready to certify the Republican 3 August 2010 Primary contest in U.S. House CD 1. Apparently, Daniel J. "Dan" Benishek won by a margin of 15 votes. As of this posting, the Secretary of State website has Mr. Benishek leading by 1 vote in uncertified returns. Stay tuned.

Former ILLINOIS Congressman Dan Rostenkowski dies at age 82
by TheGreenPapers.com Staff

Former Congressman Dan Rostenkowski (D-Illinois) died at home in Wisconsin on 11 August 2010; he was 82. A product of the "rough and tumble" of mid-20th Century Chicago politics, Rostenkowski was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1958 and served in Congress until defeated in the 1994 Midterm Elections. He was Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee for nearly a dozen years until embroiled a corruption scandal (which also largely contributed to his losing his House seat).

DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee meeting regarding the 2012 Presidential nomination bonus delegates
by Tony Roza

The Rules and Bylaws Committee meeting of 10 July 2010 proposed 2012 bonus awards of 5% for primaries held between 15 April and 15 May and 10% for primaries held between 15 May and 15 June. An additional 15% bonus is applied when states cluster (3-4 contiguous states on the same date).

The 2008 incentive plan awarded states a 5 to 30% bonus for starting their process at a later date. Only 10 states participated in the plan and those states received a total of 54 bonus delegate votes (a total of 4,418 delegate votes were allocated in 2008). The 2008 bonus allocations were computed using a subset of the total number of delegates allocated to a state rather than the entire delegation. Hence, the bonus was less than its face value. With the 2008 plan, a state had to start later in 2008 than it did in 2004 to receive the 15 or 30% bonus. There was no bonus for clustering. Since Presidential contenders are typically vetted out in the first few contests (the disproportionate influence of the earlier states) the number of additional delegates seemed to be an inadequate compensation for forfeiting the chance to choose from the full complement of candidates.

Per the DNC Delegate Selection Rules of 19 August 2006, the order in 2008 was to be Iowa (14 January 2008), Nevada (19 January 2008), New Hampshire (22 January 2008), South Carolina (29 January 2008), and all others (5 February 2008). Three of the four pre-window states (Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina) and two of the remaining states (Florida, Michigan) went before their date. Nevada was the only pre-window state that did not move to an earlier date. Note that Nevada was originally scheduled between Iowa and New Hampshire but New Hampshire later moved to an earlier date.

Democratic Change Commission's Recommendations for the 2012 Presidential Nominating Process orders the states: Iowa (6 February 2012), New Hampshire (14 February 2012), Nevada (18 February 2012), and South Carolina (28 February 2012). In 2012, Nevada is scheduled after Iowa and New Hampshire. In 2008 Nevada was scheduled between Iowa and New Hampshire.

DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee meeting regarding the 2012 Presidential nomination process
by Tony Roza

The DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee met on 9 July 2010 to prepare a proposal to be presented at the 20 August 2010 St. Louis Democratic National Committee meeting. Our original review of the 30 December 2009 Democratic Change Commission's Recommendations for the 2012 Presidential Nominating Process is here.

Timing: The proposed starting dates for the 2012 Democratic Presidential nominating process are: 6 February 2012 for the Iowa caucuses, 14 February 2012 for the New Hampshire primary, 18 February 2012 for the Nevada caucuses, and 28 February 2012 for the South Carolina primary. All other states may start no earlier than Tuesday 6 March 2012.

States violating the rules would be sanctioned 50% of their delegation. The RBC can give waivers to state parties who have tried (unsuccessfully, that is) to bring their state law into compliance with these new party rules. Many states have laws requiring the Presidential Primary to be held on the first Tuesday in February.

Reducing the number of unpledged delegates: The RBC proposes to convert a number of unpledged and alternate delegate positions into pledged delegate positions, thus reducing the pledged to unpledged ratio. To do this, 81 unpledged add-on and 614 alternate delegates would become pledged delegates. In 2008, the delegate to alternate ratio was about 6:1. The proposal changes the ratio to about 12:1.

The RBC wishes to require unpledged delegates to state their preferences shortly after the certification of the state's delegation.
