The Utah Democratic Party is governed by its constitution, bylaws, and any other policies adopted by its Central Committee.
We, the Democrats of the Great State of Utah, united in common purpose, acknowledge that we are a party of enduring strength, and that we must lead, guided by those we lead. These principles are essential to the democracy our country’s forefathers set forth.
We dedicate ourselves to seek individual freedom in the framework of a just society, and political freedom through meaningful participation by all citizens.

Every 4 years, each of the 57 State & Territory Democratic Parties craft our Delegate Selection Plan for the Democratic National Convention. This plan shares how Democrats in that state will be chosen to represent their state at the Democratic National Convention, where our Presidential & Vice Presidential nominees are chosen for the general election, and where we approve the national Democratic Party Platform.
Utah has prepared our DRAFT 2024 Plan, which is open for public feedback until April 30th at 5pm! (30 days). Once feedback has been reviewed and integrated into the plan, the Utah Democratic Party will approve this plan, and submit it plan to the Democratic National Committee for approval. On this page you will find our draft plan, the feedback form, handouts about the plan, and information on trainings. Once the plan is approved this page will be updated to show how to run to be a Delegate!
