On December 15, 2007, Presidential campaigns will hold district delegate selection caucuses, one in each Congressional district, where district-level delegates will be elected. Convention delegates selected at the district-level shall be allocated in proportion to the percentage of the primary vote won by that presidential candidate in that district. Each presidential candidate who receives at least 15% of the primary vote will be awarded delegates who will represent New Hampshire at the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado. New Hampshire will send a total of 34 delegates to the Convention, 14 of them district level delegates (7 from each district).

New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Raymond Buckley says:

"The delegate selection process is one of the most important parts of the primary process and the New Hampshire Democratic Party is committed to reaching out and empowering every interested Democrat to have a meaningful role in the Party. We have implemented affirmative action programs to ensure our delegation to the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado represents the diversity of New Hampshire including a pledge signed by each Presidential campaign that states they will strive for diverse caucuses. We encourage as many people as possible to attend these caucuses and run for delegate and are excited to be working with the Presidential campaigns to select the 34 delegates that will represent New Hampshire at the Convention."

The filing period to run for delegate to the 2008 Democratic National Convention is now open. In order to qualify for candidacy you must file a statement designating your presidential preference and a signed pledge of support for that candidate with the New Hampshire Democratic Party by December 5, 2007 by 5pm.
