Thursday was the LAST day to Request a DNC Delegate Ballot!

Whether you prefer your blue more greenish or purplish, there’s a delegate for you!

As the headline says: today (May 27) is the last day today, 5/28, at 4:15* is the DEADLINE for Democrats to request a ballot to vote for whomever their preferred Presidential campaign will have as its convention delegates!

(The asterisk is up there because while the FINAL deadline is at 5:00, you will want to start by 4:15 so that you can find your drivers license and such.  So, prospective voters should stop procrastinating and get the damn thing done!)

You have two links that you can click to order your email ballot (which will be sent to you, and I believe counted by, your candidate’s campaign.)

If THIS LONG LINK (intended for everyone) doesn’t work, then at least BERNIE VOTERS can try bit.ly/RequestBernieDelBallot.  If anyone knows where Biden voters can go to — and yes, I mean what ballot request website they can go to; don’t get crude — please let me know so I can update.

If you are a Democrat who voted for another candidate, you can just choose whichever camp you wish.  (Arguably, this is unethical, but that will just be an added draw for some of you.)  The exception is for Bloomberg voters in CA-48: you actually won a delegate!  According to the plan the CDP adopted before an election, the last delegate in that district is supposed to go to a male, but in this case there are only two candidates — one male, and the other married to Rep. Harley Rouda.

(Any instructions that come with your ballot will supersede what you see here; i am just trying to make sense of the rules as written, and CDP doesn’t always abide by them.)

In the past, aspiring delegates have provided candidate statements and responded to questions.  No provision has been made for such statements (or for questions), but various people may be putting up a Facebook page for them.  We may also provide a home for them here.  I have no idea (nor does anyone else) how long they will be, if they come to exist.


About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Deposed as Northern Vice Chair of DPOC in April 2014 (in violation of Roberts Rules) when his anti-corruption and pro-consumer work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, who then worked with the lawless and power-mad DPOC Chair to eliminate his internal oversight. Expelled from DPOC in October 2018 (in violation of Roberts Rules) for having endorsed Spitzer over Rackauckas -- which needed to be done. None of his pre-putsch writings ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level, nor do they now. One of his daughters co-owns a business offering campaign treasurer services to Democratic candidates and the odd independent. He is very proud of her. He doesn't directly profit from her work and it doesn't affect his coverage. (He does not always favor her clients, though she might hesitate to take one that he truly hated.) He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
