DFA'S ENDORSEMENT PROCESS
Democracy for America is a member-driven, people-powered PAC with a one-million strong community that has contributed over $63 million dollars and made more than 25 million calls to elect over 1,000 progressive candidates up-and-down the ballot nationwide.
Our goal is to empower our members to vote — and to get out the votes of their friends and family — to decide which presidential candidate DFA should endorse in the 2020 Democratic Party presidential primary.
Here's how DFA's presidential endorsement process works:
- The endorsement vote ends at 11:59pm Pacific Time on Sunday, March 1.
- Just like in a real election, you will need to work hard to maximize support for your candidate if you want them to win this endorsement. That means getting your friends, family and other like-minded progressives to cast their votes for your candidate as well — on Facebook, Twitter, over email, on the phone, or however you want to spread the word!
- DFA will only endorse in this presidential primary if there is overwhelming support for one candidate. That means that, just like when we last conducted our last official presidential endorsement vote for the 2016 primary, we will only endorse if one candidate reaches DFA's super-majority threshold of 67% (two-thirds of votes cast, or 66.67% to be technical about it).
- On Monday, March 2nd — after a complete security review of the votes — we will announce the results.
