WHAT IS ADEMs?
Every two years, the California Democratic Party holds an Assembly District Election Meeting (or “ADEM”) so that each district can elect 14 delegates to represent it in the state party.
So, why does this matter?
The delegates we elect will be our community’s voice at the party level. They vote on endorsements of candidates, ballot measures, and the platform and leaders of the Democratic party itself.
These delegates are the party. They drive its mission, priorities, and focus.
It’s extremely important to elect delegates that share our values so that our party does as well.
