The Democratic National Convention will meet in Philadelphia on July 25, 2106 to nominate the next President and Vice President of the United States. The first step for Virginia will be a Presidential Preference Primary to be held on March 1, 2016 to determine the allocation of State and National Convention delegates. The percentages obtained by Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will determine how many state convention delegates they win in each city and county. Those State Convention Delegates will then go to Congressional District Conventions and a State Convention to elect National Convention Delegates.
Cities and counties will hold caucuses April 16 or 18, 2016 to elect 2,000 State Convention delegates (and 500 alternates) who will attend congressional district conventions and the State Convention. These delegates and alternates will attend congressional district (CD) conventions in May 2016 and each choose three to eight National Convention delegates per CD (some districts will also choose one alternate). The same state delegates/alternates will attend the State Convention on June 18, 2016 to elect National Convention delegates and alternates.
