DELEGATE APPLICATION FORMS TO BE AVAILABLE ONLINE after Nov. 9, 2015
FOR DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION, July 25-28, 2016

The Ohio Democratic Party (ODP) has adopted the 2016 “Delegate Selection Plan” for the Democratic National Convention which will be held next year July25-28 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Delegates to the National Convention are elected by their fellow Democrats at special Democratic Caucus Meetings held in each Congressional District in Ohio.   

If you are interested in being a delegate to the National Convention (or know someone who is) you must fill out and submit a "Declaration of Candidacy" form and "Pledge of Support" forms to ODP.  These two forms will be available from ODP online beginning on November 9, 2015.

The deadline for submitting your completed Declaration of Candidacy (application form) and Pledge of Support form to ODP will be December 26, 2016.

Then, a District Pre-Primary Caucus meeting will be held to nominate delegates to the National Convention.

Only those Democrats who submitted the two forms will be eligible to be nominated to attend the National Convention.

Ohio has a total of 165 delegate seats and 12 alternate seats to fill.

More details will be forthcoming from the Ohio Democratic Party on this subject.

Tue, Oct. 11 -- Former Ohio Governor (1983-1991), Richard Celeste, will be at Hillary Clinton campaign HQ, 14 N. 5th St., Zanesville, 10 am.  In addition to being our former Governor, he was also Ambassador to India (1998-2001), Director of the Peace Corps (1979-1981), and a member of the Ohio House of Representatives, 5th District, 1971-1974.  From his Wikipedia bio:  "As governor, Celeste increased support for human services, mental health & addiction recovery services, funding for education and children services including providing onsite daycare for state employees. Before the Celeste era, Ohio ranked near the bottom among states in funding for these programs. Celeste and the Democratic-controlled legislature increased the state income tax by approximately 40% while also retaining a temporary tax of 50% instituted by the Republican predecessors. Celeste is noted for opening many government positions to African Americans and women—he hired more women to cabinet positions than all previous governors combined. Celeste also allowed state employee unions to negotiate wages and benefits, rather than just working conditions. At the end of his last term he commuted several Ohio prisoners death sentences to life terms. Among them was Debra Brown's along with the sentences of most battered women serving sentences at Marysville state prison for killing their aggressors. He also commuted Donald Lee Maurer to life in prison. Maurer had been convicted of raping and killing his 8 year old Massillon neighbor Dawn Marie Hendershot in the early 1980s."
