Here's how we compute the delegate count:
Each of the 14 delegates below will cast ½ of a National Convention delegate vote.
DEMOCRATS ABROAD is allocated 9 delegate votes at the Democratic National Convention but will be sending 22 persons who will be acknowledged as "delegates" on the floor of the Convention. Fourteen delegates have 1/2 vote and 8 have 1/4 vote each.
Friday 6 February - Monday 9 February 2004: Local Caucuses or Country Caucuses
Friday 20 February - Monday 23 February 2004: Local Caucuses or Country Caucuses
There will be either Local or Country Caucuses of registered American voters who are legal residents of each country or each subdivision of such country in which there is such a caucus and who have signed a pledge to support the Democratic Party in the 2 November 2004 Presidential General Election (obviously, there are countries- or portions of countries- in which the holding of a Democrats Abroad local or country caucus by American citizens residing therein is impractical if not difficult and/or impossible, unwise if not dangerous and/or absolutely forbidden or illegal).
Saturday 27 March 2004: three Regional Caucuses (one each for Europe/Middle East/Africa, Asia/Pacific and the Americas) are convened the day before the Global Convention. Votes cast by country delegates to these Regional Caucuses by telephone, FAX, teleconferencing and/or e-mail is permitted.
Sunday 28 March 2004: the 9 regional delegates to the National Convention meet with the 8 Democratic National Committee members from Democrats Abroad and the members of the Democratic Party Committee Abroad in a Global Convention in which proxy voting by any participant is permitted.
Democrats Abroad is active in 60 countries: 32 full status countries and 28 committees "in-formation".
