Any Democrat from the 5th LD can run for these positions. All they need to do is declare that they are a Democrat and that they wish to be a delegate or alternate. There are nine delegate and four alternate positions to fill. Any Democrat is eligible. Participation is free.

Who can vote for these delegates? Anyone who is a Democrat in the 5th LD can vote. All 5th LD Democrats are encouraged to show up and help choose the people who will voice their opinions at the state level.
