5. I'd like to be a national convention delegate too!

And maybe even a presidential elector!

How do they determine who will go to the National Convention?

IIRC, it involves primary candidates. Every Dem candidate who gets over 10% or 15% of the caucus vote is allocated a share of the state's at-large delegates, and everyone who breaks that threshold in each congressional district gets a share of that district's 5 or 6 votes.

But who gets to decide exactly who goes?
