This section contains some of the most significant documents related to the rules of the Democratic Party. In addition, because sometimes it is important to understand when and why changes were made, older versions of documents are archived.
The search for these documents is difficult and very time consuming. If you have any historical documents related to the Democratic Party, please share them so that they can be included in this archive.
DNC Commissions - Commissions are primarily mandated by a national convention to address one or more specific issues. Commissions meet and then prepare a report with recommendations. The DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee reviews the recommendations and determines if any changes should occur in the Charter, Bylaws, or other official rules.
