The Riverside County Democratic Party (RCDP) has fifty-three (53) slots in its delegation to the Democratic State Central Committee (DSCC) for the 2021-2023 term. RCDP will elect members to the DSCC at the RCDP Meeting on Monday, January 11, 2021. To be eligible to run for the DSCC, you must be a Regular or Alternate Member of RCDP whose dues are paid in full or who has been granted a dues waiver, and should NOT already be a member of the DSCC by other means.
All candidates must submit a “Declaration of Candidacy” form to RCDP to be eligible to be elected to the DSCC at the January 11, 2021 meeting. The form must be received by 5:00 PM on Friday, January 8, 2021 for all candidates. Any unfilled DSCC slots following the January 11, 2021 meeting may be filled at the direction of the RCDP Executive Board.
The 2021 California Democratic Party Convention will be held on Zoom from April 26th to May 2nd. Anyone interested in being a Delegate should be prepared to take on the cost and responsibility. Conventions are normally held in-person, requiring Delegates to plan for the travel and fees required to travel to Convention locations around the state. For 2021, all Delegates must be prepared to pay Delegate fees and ensure that they have a strong internet connection for the duration of the convention. No decisions have been made about having future virtual conventions so all Delegates should plan on future conventions occurring in person with all associated costs and time commitments.
