Saturday 28 April 2012 - Pre-primary Caucus

National District-level delegates are slated. Only those participants who sign a pledge of support to a particular candidate may participate.

National Convention District Delegates will be selected from the slate of nominees using a pre-designated order. Once the allocation of district delegates among presidential preferences is determined by the primary, the delegates are selected by their order.

 

Participation in California's delegate selection process is open to all voters who wish to participate as Democrats. Under California law, voters who are either registered as Democrats or have declined to state a recognized political party may request a Democratic primary ballot. Voters who do so, will have the request noted on their voter file. Any U.S. citizen resident in California who is not on parole for a felony conviction may register to vote as a Democrat.

Tuesday 5 June 2012: 547 of 609 delegates to the Democratic National Convention are pledged to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today's California Presidential Primary. A mandatory 15 percent threshold is required in order for a presidential contender to be pledged National Convention delegates at either the congressional district or statewide level.

  • 365 district delegates are to be pledged proportionally to presidential contenders based on the primary results in each of the State's 53 congressional districts.
