Rules for Election of LACDP Representatives to Democratic State Central Committee Executive Board
Time/Method/Number/Chair Automatic: At the first regular meeting of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party (LACDP) following the Democratic State Central Committee’s (DSCC) annual Convention in an odd-numbered year, LACDP shall elect representatives to the DSCC Executive Board, one for each 100,000 Democrats or portion thereof, by signed ballot. LACDP is allocated 27 representatives for the 2019-2021 term. The LACDP Chair shall be deemed automatically elected, unless the Chair is a member by other means.
Eligibility: Only LACDP Members who hold their DSCC membership by virtue of Article II-Section 4 of the DSCC By-Laws (those having been elected by LACDP) are eligible. Alternate Members shall be eligible for election should there be an insufficient number of Regular Members (Elected, Appointed, and Ex-Officio) who choose to stand for election.
Equal Division/Election/Number of Votes/Ties/Vacancies: LACDP representatives to the DSCC Executive Board shall be apportioned as equally as possible between men and women. As there are 26 open seats and as the LACDP Chair shall be deemed automatically elected, the 13 candidates of each gender who receive the most votes shall be deemed elected. Ties shall be determined by lot. No member may vote for more than 13 candidates of either gender. All vacancies shall be filled by election, due notice having been given.
Duties/Proxies/Acknowledgment of Duties: If a LACDP representative to the DSCC Executive Board is not in attendance or represented by proxy at any meeting of the DSCC Executive Board, the representative shall be automatically removed and a vacancy shall be deemed to exist. Any representative so removed shall be notified and accorded the right of a hearing before LACDP’s Policy Committee, and may be represented by any person of his/her choosing, if so desired. The decision of the Policy Committee shall be final. It is not LACDP’s responsibility to locate proxies for a representative. The Chair may request LACDP’s Executive Board representatives to sign proxies in advance of an Executive Board meeting for use in their absence. Such request does not relieve a representative of his or her duties and responsibilities to attend DSCC Executive Board meetings or to find a proxy if they are unavailable to attend a meeting. This rule does not place any duty on LACDP or it’s Chair. All candidates must sign a statement of acknowledgment of their duties and responsibilities.
