Ohio Democratic Party
2020 State Convention

The Ohio Democratic Party Convention will be held virtually on Saturday, August 1, 2020, at 10:30am. Below under Important Information is the official Call to the 2020 ODP State Convention and who is eligible as automatic delegates to the 2020 ODP State Convention. 

By Ohio Democratic Party Rules, only delegates to the State Party Convention may nominate and elect individual(s) as Presidential Electors at the State Convention. At-large delegates are apportioned to each county based on results of the 2018 Gubernatorial Election - see attached delegate distribution under Important Information. Presidential Electors cast the actual ballot for the winning party candidate for President and Vice President of the United States after the General Election scheduled to be held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. The meeting of Presidential Electors usually takes place in December. If you are elected as a Presidential Elector, you are expected/required to attend the meeting in December to fulfill your duties as a Presidential Elector.

Ohio has 18 Presidential Electors: One Elector will be chosen by delegates from each of Ohio’s 16 Congressional Districts. The other two Electors are statewide at-large and will be chosen by all delegates.

Once Erie County’s at-large delegates for the State Convention are elected, they will have the opportunity to nominate an individual or individuals to run for Presidential Elector. Forms will be provided for the nomination(s).
