At the Democratic National Convention, superdelegates should vote for the presidential candidate whom their constituents have chosen in their respective state primaries or caucuses.

Why is this important?

Superdelegates are delegates who vote for the Democratic nominee at the National Convention. Unlike pledged delegates, who are required to support the candidate(s) chosen by voters in their state primary or caucus, superdelegates are designated by the leadership of the Democratic National Committee and may vote for any candidate of their choosing. Therefore, superdelegates hold a large amount of power over the party's nomination. Allowing these select few individuals to choose a candidate based on their own personal preference undermines the democratic foundations of the nomination process.

    One person, one vote. So-called superdelegates should not even exist. Support the will of your constituents or be voted out. It's time to put an end to corruption and corporate-cronyism.

    super delegates shoundn't even be a thing. it was created to make sure whatever is best for the establishment is what gets through and to make each person's voice matter less. that is not what our country is about. one person, one vote. get rid os the super delegates system now.

    What's the point of primaries if super-delegates exist?
