Final Recommendations of the Change Commission
President Obama and the Democratic Party are committed to a presidential nominating process that is as inclusive and accessible as possible. To that end, last spring DNC Chairman Tim Kaine appointed the Democratic Change Commission—a panel created as a result of a resolution unanimously passed during the 2008 Democratic Convention in Denver—to reexamine and recommend changes to the Democratic Party’s rules for the 2012 Presidential nominating and delegate selection process.
After many meetings, months of discussion, and input from the public and Democratic allied groups, the Change Commission this December made its final recommendations to the Rules and Bylaws Committee by unanimous agreement.
These recommendations follow through on President Obama’s promise made during the election to reexamine and improve the Democratic primary process and are an important statement about the direction our Party is going and our priorities as we look to 2012 and beyond.
