Candidates must qualify (see here for more details) to appear on the March 5, 2024 primary in Tennessee. These are candidates who seem to have a reasonable chance of qualifying based on name recognition and campaign financing:
The Democratic National Committee will be held in Chicago starting on August 19, 2024.
Tennessee will have 70 delegates. Five of these (two men and three women) will be chosen from Congressional District 5 to represent us, based on the results of the March 5 primary. There will also be at-large delegates selected by the Tennessee Democratic Party’s state executive committee.
To be a delegate, you will need to apply (in January 2024), vote in the March primary, and be selected by the county and congressional district conventions which will be held on March 16 and April 6, respectively. Please see the TNDP’s Delegate Selection Plan for more information.
We will post the list of candidates for CD5 DNC delegates in early 2024 when these are announced by the TNDP.
