Alaska Dems to Start 2012 Caucus Process on April 15

On Monday the Alaska Democratic Party released for public comment their draft delegate selection plan for 2012. The process will start on April 15 with precinct caucuses and end with the selection of delegates to the September Democratic National Convention on the weekend of May 11-13, 2012. This is not an official date as of yet -- as has been the case with other Democratic caucus states that have submitted draft delegate selection plans for public comment recently -- but the timing aspect is in accordance with the DNC rules for delegate selection (and would yield bonus delegates for holding the first determining step after March). Approval from the Democratic Rules and Bylaws Committee should be a formality once the Alaska Democratic Party transmits this plan (plus any changes based on public comment) next month.
