What is a County Delegate?

County Delegates are people elected by caucus participants from within their precinct to represent their precinct at the Summit County Democrats’ County Convention.  They also serve as members of the Summit County Democrats central committee, which is the governing body that helps guide the direction of the county party.  County Delegates will serve a two-year term, meaning they will vote at our county conventions in both 2020 and 2021, as well as be invited to participate in our central committee meetings for the next two years.

What are the requirements for being a delegate?

You must be at least 18 years old by November 3, 2020. You must reside in the precinct that you will be representing. While you do not need to be a registered Democrat, you cannot be an elected officer of another political party, and during your term as delegate, you cannot vote in caucuses or partake in conventions for other political parties. You may resign your office of delegate at any time.
