The selection process for delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Philladelphia, PA works as follows:

  1. The results of Florida's March 15, 2016 presidential primary election were used to apportion delegates to the national convention. You can find the full allocation here.
  2. On May 7, 2016, grassroots Democrats from each of Florida’s 27 congressional districts will meet in congressional district caucuses to elect 140 district-level delegates to the Democratic National Convention.
  3. Following the congressional district caucuses, in conjunction with the Florida Democratic Party’s Leadership Blue weekend, the district-level delegates will meet to select 27 Pledged Party Leader and Elected Official (PLEO) Delegates, 45 At-Large Delegates, and 17 At-Large Alternates to the Democratic National Convention.

* Delegates pay their own travel and lodging. The Convention is in Philadelphia from July 25 through July 29. The average flight costs about $200 and the room-rates at the convention hotel for Florida delegates (Downtown Marriott Hotel) are $560 per night (1 King) and $630 (2 Queens) with a 4-night minimum.
