Any registered Democrat may run for a delegate position in the county where they are registered. Upon election, each delegate shall submit a non-refundable $45 registration fee (or $25 student registration fee) made payable to the Florida Democratic Party. County DEC’s may vote to add a surcharge of up to $15 per delegate to defray local expenses related to the conference. Please check with your county DEC to verify information regarding conference fees.

State Conference Rules & Timeline

Delegation Signage and Seating

Below you can find a copy of this year’s Signs and Seating Protocol.  As a reminder, each delegation (Count DEC or State Caucus) is responsible for producing its own delegation signage to represent their delegation on the floor of the general session. 

Please note: at 6pm Friday, 10/27, we will hold a special training session for Delegation Captains.  Delegation Captains are DEC Chairs/State Caucus Presidents or their designees.  It is mandatory that the Delegation Captain or their designee attend this training session. During this training session we will welcome everyone to the Conference and review the electronic voting procedures for Saturday’s general session. Please be sure to make arrangements to attend this training session now.
