OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Democrats are finalizing a plan for how they will select delegates after the state’s 2016 presidential primary election.

Party officials announced Thursday that its delegate selection plan was formally ratified at a meeting of its central committee last week. The plan has now been submitted to the Democratic National Committee Rules and Bylaws Committee for consideration and approval.

Based on a change approved at the party’s state convention last month, Democrats are opening their traditionally closed primary election to independents beginning next year.

Democrats will be allotted 42 delegates and three alternates to the national convention this year. The delegates will be awarded using a proportional system based on the results of the March 1 presidential preferential primary.
