You will also be voting for Presidential Delegates. Vote for up to 5 delegates if you live in the 11th Congressional District or up to 6 delegates if you live in the 6th Congressional District. If you have no delegate preference, we suggest that you vote for all the delegates for your preferred presidential candidate. If you prefer some of the delegate candidates over the others, we suggest you vote for only the candidates you prefer. This makes it more likely your preferred delegate candidates will be selected. You can vote for delegate candidates for more than one presidential candidate as long as you do not vote for more than your maximum number of allotted delegates. This does not affect how many delegates each presidential candidate receives-just which delegates will be chosen to represent each candidate at the Democratic National Convention.
