What it means to be an IBEW delegate

The Democratic National Convention (DNC) has occurred every four years since 1832. Organized by the U.S. Democratic Party, its main goals are to adopt a party platform, officially select candidates for president and vice president, and bring the party together before the election.


Delegates from every U.S. state, the U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia attend the event.


To win the Democratic nomination, a candidate needs to win the majority of pledged delegates on the first ballot; around 1,895 delegates.

Some of you have been elected to be District delegates and others to be At-Large delegates. District delegates are elected based on local voting results within congressional districts, and are often bound by those results during the early rounds of voting at the DNC. At-large delegates, however, represent broader state interests at the DNC.

There will be resolutions presented at the DNC that may either be beneficial or harmful to the IBEW. Resolutions are formal proposals that represent the party’s collective stance on issues. Resolutions guide the party’s legislative priorities and public message. 

All DNC delegates present will vote on resolutions that reach the floor. A majority vote is usually required for a resolution to pass. We will be asking you to vote for or against these resolutions based on the interests of the IBEW. The more knowledgeable you are on the IBEW’s current agenda, the more you can fully take part in advocating for IBEW interests.
