Delegates were apportioned based on the best primary results as available on May 22nd, 2020, including precinct level results for counties that are split between multiple Congressional Districts.

*An asterisk indicates that the first delegate elected in this category must be female, in all categories delegates are slated alternating by gender, allowing nonbinary delegates to be slated should their vote require it.

The Democratic National Convention is where the Democratic Party officially nominates our Presidential Candidate, as well as approves the four-year national party platform. Oregon’s Delegates represent Oregon in this process and make sure that Oregonians have their voices heard.
