Congressional District Delegates

Any citizen of Multnomah County registered to vote as a Democrat is eligible to be elected as a delegate to a Congressional District Committee. These advisory committees meet with their representatives to further their goals in Washington, D.C., and so that our Congressional representatives have the opportunity to hear authentic community voices.

About the CongressionalDistrict Committee Delegates

Delegates from Multnomah County are elected for each of our three Congressional Districts: CD-1 (Suzanne Bonamici) on the west side, CD-3 (Earl Blumenauer) in most of the county, and CD-5 (Kurt Schrader) in parts of the west side and in one eastside precinct.

Duties: Meetings for CD-1 and CD-5 take place at various locations throughout each district. The CD-1 committee meets bi-monthly and encourages attendance of Rep. Suzanne Bonamici and staff to further the goals of the district in Washington. We provide an opportunity for her to hear the goals and ambitions of our committee. The CD-3 committee meets quarterly for a two-hour meeting with a social hour and potluck.

You can read the formal requirements of each position in the 2018 Bylaws of the Multnomah Democrats (PDF).
