2020 Revised Democratic Party Delegate Selection Process

In Missouri, we select 1,226 state delegates who represent the voters in our precincts, wards, and counties. Here in Cass County, we elect 19 delegates.

These delegates have been split proportionately between Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden based on the vote in Missouri's 4th Congressional District. We will be electing 13 delegates for Joe Biden and 6 Delegates for Bernie Sanders. 

Please consider becoming a state delegate for Cass County. As a state delegate, you will vote on the 4th District delegates to the national convention, vote for the automatic delegates to the DNC, vote for the Missouri electors and also any other business as it arises at the Missouri State Convention. 
After reviewing CDC projections and following CDC guidelines, the Missouri Democratic Party has decided to make the 2020 Missouri Democratic Party State Convention a virtual event. We will pass along the information about the state convention as it becomes available. In addition, if you plan on running to be a District-Level delegate, PLEO delegate or At-Large Delegate to the Democratic Convention in August, you will 1st need to run to be a state delegate.
