Ohio Democrats will be selecting 93 of their delegates to this summer’s presidential convention tomorrow night at gatherings in all 16 of the state’s congressional districts. 

Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper says the idea is to plant the deepest of Democratic grass roots especially among the newcomers energized by the candidacy of Bernie Sanders.

“I’m sure people will be giving good oratory. But I think the truth is the best way you win these is you organize. I remember from Cincinnati a number of years ago, a number of people showed up who were well known. But the winner was a 22-year-old who nobody ever heard of who brought 100 people.” 

Unlike Republicans – where the winner of the March 15 primary gets all the delegates – Democrats will divide the delegates elected tomorrow night proportionally between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.  Other appointed delegates will include big-city mayors and Ohio’s Democratic congressional delegation. 

Here are the locations for the 16 congressional district meetings:

Candidates run as pledged supporters of either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. For more information:
