TOMORROW: Meeting of DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee


WASHINGTON—Tuesday, May 8, and Wednesday, May 9, the Democratic National Committee’s Rules and Bylaws Committee will meet in Washington, D.C. Over the course of the two-day event, participants will review the Unity Reform Commission report and address other party business.


At the DNC’s March meeting, the full DNC took the step of advancing the most significant reforms to the party’s presidential nominating process in decades. DNC members voted to accept the Rules and Bylaws Committee report that calls for reducing the influence of unpledged delegates (commonly known as ‘superdelegates’) in the presidential nominating process, expanding the use of primaries, taking steps to protect the right to vote, making our caucuses more accessible, increasing transparency in our party and increasing grassroots participation. These reforms will continue to make our party more competitive in every ZIP code in 2018 and beyond.


The Rules and Bylaws Committee received the recommendations of the Unity Reform Commission in December and has until June 2018 to complete its work, which includes the crafting of any rules, bylaws, or charter amendments necessary to implement these recommendations. These recommendations will then go to the full DNC for consideration at the summer meeting.


This meeting is open to the public. Those interested in attending can RSVP here.
