Call to Caucus – Electing Delegates to the State Democratic Convention

The Fairfax County Democratic Committee announces that it will hold caucuses on April 16th at nine locations to elect Delegates and Alternates to the State and Congressional District Democratic Conventions.  State Delegates will elect National Delegates at both the Congressional District and State Conventions.  Those National Delegates will go to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia this July and nominate our candidate for President.

If fewer than the maximum number of delegates file for any given caucus, then that caucus will be cancelled and all those who filed will be considered elected.  Click here to view the maximum allocations of State Delegates & Alternates for each supervisor (magisterial) district.
