Apr 17 – Straw Presidential Caucus and How to Vote for Delegates to the Democratic National Convention


This meeting is going to be very different from our normal presentations. There will be a lot of audience participation, and an opportunity to display your Hillary or Bernie shirts.

On Sunday, May 1, registered Democrats in the state of California will be caucusing. The caucuses are specific to Congressional Districts. To vote for our friends who are running to become delegates to the National Convention we can attend one of the caucuses.

After we are all educated about the caucus process, there will be presentations by two club members who are running, Hillary supporter Deborah Currier and Bernie Sanders supporter, Mike Johnson followed by a very short question and answer period.

Then we are going to have our very own Point Loma & OB Dems straw caucus, just like you have heard about in Iowa. Come join us as we participate in direct democracy, even if it is straw.

Bring your best arguments for your presidential candidate. Each club member will get 30 seconds to try to persuade us to vote for their choice.

Yes you may bring signs or papier-mâché heads. Let’s have some fun!


You can check on approved delegates for Hillary and Bernie on the CADEM website that also lists the locations for each DNC District-Level Caucus.

California Democrats will have one of the largest, most diverse delegations at the Democratic National Convention scheduled for the week of July 25-28, 2016, in Philadelphia.
