The New Jersey Democratic State Committee (NJDSC) has unanimously voted to implement its Proposed Delegate Selection Plan for the 2024 Democratic National Convention. This plan, aiming to ensure a fair, inclusive, and transparent delegate selection process, will now undergo final approval by the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
The strategic plan prioritizes representation of New Jersey’s diverse population at the national convention. According to NJDSC Chairman, LeRoy J. Jones Jr., the strategy is to ensure that every voice is heard and that all Democrats have the chance to participate in shaping the party’s future.
The state’s delegation will consist of 127 delegates and eleven alternates. Starting January 2024, those interested in becoming district delegates can apply through the NJDSC and must meet the State’s ballot access requirements to run with their favored presidential candidate.
The plan incorporates measures to ensure participation from communities that have been historically underrepresented, including people of color, women, young people, LGBTQ+ individuals, and people with disabilities. The NJDSC will host informational sessions, both in-person and online, beginning this fall to provide further information about the Plan to the Democratic community.
