National Electoral Strategy Proposal was an August 2018 letter to the Democratic Socialists of America NPC.

Executive Summary

This document puts forth an electoral strategy for DSA based on the following set of principles:

1. Locals will have the authority to choose their own electoral strategies.

2. The National Electoral Committee will be elected, transparent, and accountable, and its primary role will be to support locals in their electoral work through skills building.

3. The NEC will focus on helping to build each chapter's capacity to create independent electoral structures and facilitating cross-local collaboration and communication.

4. Electoral, as only one aspect of building power, will to the greatest extent possible be the natural extension of other local campaigns around issues like housing, racial justice, mutual aid, etc.[1]
