ADEMS: The Election you've never heard of
The California Democratic Party bylaws (Article VI) provide that an Assembly District Election Meeting (ADEMS) be held in each of the 80 California Assembly Districts in the January of every odd-numbered year to elect 7 “self-identified female” and 7 “other than self-identified female” to be Assembly District Delegates (ADDs) to represent the Assembly District they are registered in. These elections are open to all California Democrats.
