In order to vote in the ADEM, you must be a registered Democrat residing in the AD as of October 22, 2012 (unless turned 18 or naturalized after that date); and pay a $5 donation to defray the cost of the ADEM, or sign a form declaring that to pay the fee would constitute an economic hardship.

What CA Democratic Party Delegates do:

  • Attend annual convention
  • Network with other Democrats
  • Represent his/her constituency
  • Elect Party officers
  • Promote the California Democratic Party agenda
  • Endorse candidates for statewide, legislative and congressional office
  • Vote to endorse resolutions and ballot measures

Every 2 years following the General Election, the CA Democratic Party reconstitutes its leadership through election and appointment of Members in the Democratic State Central Committee, also known as “Delegates”, from the following sources:

  • Elected through County Committees
  • Appointed by Democratic Elected Officials / Nominees
  • Elected through Assembly Districts

The Assembly District Delegates (ADDs) and Assembly District Executive Board representatives (“EBd Reps”) are elected at Assembly District Election Meetings (ADEMs) held in each of the 80 Assembly Districts. The California Democratic Party is convening ADEMs on January 12 and 13, 2013, where 12 people (6 men / 6 women) from each Assembly District will be elected to represent their district for both the 2013 and 2014 State Conventions.
