What are Assembly District Delegates?
Every two years, the CA Democrats elect 7 women and 7 men from each Assembly District in CA as delegates to the state party. Those who are elected will have a chance to vote for the new party chair and other leadership. The race is hotly contested and will determine how welcoming, grassroots-focused and innovative the party becomes or how beholden it will remain to big money interests.
Delegates elect Party officers, endorse candidates for statewide, legislative and congressional office, attend the annual convention, network with other Democrats, represent your constituency, promote the California Democratic Party agenda, and vote to endorse resolutions and ballot measures.
You get 14 votes for delegates, 1 of which you must also vote for Executive Board Representative.

Community Activist, Sanders Volunteer
As an immigrant raised by a single parent, I feel very fortunate to have earned a Bachelor degree in Aerospace Engineering. I have enjoyed the value of an education and a proper paying job. Today, that opportunity dwindles for many, as the cost of living and education grow, while worker pay remains the same, and jobs go to other countries. Higher wages, skilled labor, free education and healthcare, clean energy, and other progressive policies must be in our party platform.
If you elect me I will support progressive candidates, a progressive party platform. And progressive ballot measures. We need candidates who are like Bernie Sanders. People who do not accept donations from powerful special interest groups, and who are grassroots and working class oriented.
This year I spend hundreds of hours volunteering to register and inform voters. I helped organize canvasing and phone banking events for Bernie Sanders during the primary election, and other progressive candidates in the general election. The people of our districts need honest representatives who are looking out for them.
Let’s correct the course of our country together, by voting and staying engaged in our democracy.
I’m a progressive who campaigned for Bernie and supported and fund raised for his delegates in my district and surrounding districts. I’m on the board of the Native Women’s Unity Association, and I support candidates that support the people and are not beholden to corporations or their political masters.
