From August 19-22, 2024, delegates from around the country will gather in Chicago for the Democratic National Convention.
Because the primary goal of the Democratic National Convention is to nominate candidates for President and Vice President of the United States, the primary duty of delegates is to vote for a nominee. Delegates are allotted to candidates based on the vote share they receive in each state’s primary contest, and national delegates must pledge to a specific candidate at the time that they run. Delegates must also be registered as Democrats by March 15th.
Utah has 34 national delegates, allotted as follows:
There must be gender parity within delegates, meaning that, if no non-binary person files, there must be an equal number of men and women delegates for each congressional district or at-large slot.
