Inside Baseball: What the 2019 Convention Vote Data Tells Us About the DSA Membership

Two months after the 2019 National Convention, the election numbers for the National Political Committee (NPC) have been released to the membership. Though we already knew the results of the NPC election, the ballots are the first public data we have on the membership since the 2017 Convention. The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) reports its total membership figures as it has grown, but we have relatively little information to help us objectively identify member and chapter trends.
