At-Large Elections

Welcome at-large members! DSA is looking at our largest convention ever and potentially the first at-large delegate election! This possibility reflects the amazing growth and activity of our members. Because of limited space due to this overwhelming participation we need to gauge interest of those wanting to serve as at-large delegates. If there is a large enough response, we will hold an election the likes of which DSA has never seen.

If you are interested in serving as an at-large delegate, please fill out this form. Members must fill out this form by June 25. Please note: This will be just for members residing in organizing committee jurisdictions, jurisdictions of chapters that were not recognized by April 17, or where there is no formally recognized DSA group.

Candidate statements will be posted below after June 25

If an election is needed, voting will happen from July 1st-10th. Check back here on July 1st for the links to the voting site.

At this training, we'll be running through the basics of how to set up a Medicare for All canvassing campaign in your chapter.

This training will include a "Rap Training," where we'll be going over in a bit more detail the Medicare for all door-knocking rap so as to get people comfortable with talking about the need for single-payer healthcare.
