2021 Party Reorganization

At its most basic level, the Delaware Democratic Party is made up of a series of local committees at the State, Subdivision, and District levels. There are District Committees for each of the 41 State House Districts and the 8 Ward Districts in the City of Wilmington. There are 4 Subdivision Committees, one for New Castle County, Kent County, Sussex County, and Wilmington City respectively. These committees are lead at the State Level by the State Executive Committee.

Every year following a Presidential Election the seats on each DelDems Committee are vacated and open for re-election. This process is known as Reorganization and is a prime opportunity for new Democrats to engage with the Party infrastructure.

District Level Reorganization

Throughout the first 3 months of 2021, each Representative District and Wilmington City Ward Committee has held a public meeting to elect their membership. Any resident who is registered as a Democrat and has not been a registered member of another political party for at least 1 year is eligible to serve on their district's committee.

If you're not sure which district you live in, please visit ivote.de.gov to verify. Delaware.

Subdivision Level Reorganization

Following the Election of District level Committee Members, each Subdivision holds its own Reorganization Convention/Caucus to elect Subdivision level leadership. This leadership is made up of a Subdivision Chair, Vice-Chairs, Secretaries, Treasurer, and At-Large Members. While any resident Democrat may vote at the Reorganization Meetings, only Committee Members may cast votes at the Subdivision level Reorganization Convention Caucus.

State Level Reorganization

The Reorganization Process concludes with the 2021 State Party Convention. At this State Level Reorganization event State Party leadership will be elected. The leadership slate is made up of the State Party Chairperson, 2 Vice-Chairs, Secretary, and Treasurer. The State Party Convention will also vote on revisions to the State Party Rules and the State Party Platform.

The 2021 Delaware Democratic State Convention is being held virtually on June 12.

The voting body of State Party Convention is made up of Delegates. Each Rep. District is allocated based on its composite democratic strength. The Composite Democratic Strength of a district is determined by adding the number of registered Democrats at the time of the last General Election to the average vote total of Statewide Democratic candidates in the same election and then dividing by two. A complete listing of each district's delegate allocation can be found by clicking here.  Delegates will be elected at the Rep. District Committee Meetings in March and April. A full list of the scheduled delegate election can be found below and on our Upcoming Events page.
