2024 Nevada Delegate Selection Plan

In February 2024, Nevada Democrats began our process to elect delegates to the Democratic National Convention. Delegates to the national convention play a critical role in our party – at the convention, delegates will determine the Democratic nominee for President and adopt the national party platform.

  • Nevada will have 49 delegates at the national convention in 2024. Our Delegate Selection Plan outlines how those delegates will be determined.

NEXT STEPS: How can you participate? There are three important steps to be part of this process:

  • Vote in the Presidential Preference Primary on Tuesday, February 6th, 2024. Any registered Nevada Democrat can participate by voting early, voting by mail, or voting on Primary Day.
  • Afterwards, Democrats who voted in the Primary can participate in Assembly District Delegate Meetings on Saturday, April 13th, 2024 where attendees will elect delegates to the State Convention .
  • Lastly, on Saturday, May 18th, 2024 the state party will host the State Convention where delegates will be elected for the national convention.

Please note, Delegate positions are competitive and taken very seriously. We encourage any one who is interested to run to be a delegate but it is important to know that it is a costly and time-consuming endeavor.
