This short video provides an overview of the process and what it means to be a delegate.

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 California’s 80 Assembly Districts.

The California Democratic Party will be convening the ADEM for the 78th Assembly District on Saturday January 10 at the Marina Village Conference Center, Quivira Way (map) where 14 people (7 men / 7 women) will be elected to represent the district as DSCC (Democratic State Central Committee) Delegates for both the 2015 and 2016 State Conventions.

A person may only participate in the ADEM if he/she is a Democrat residing in and registered to vote by the October 20, 2014, voter registration deadline, in the Assembly District they wish to represent, unless the person turned 18 or was a naturalized after the deadline, and is registered or registers onsite.
