Thirty-nine delegates actually signed the Constitution. There were 55 delegates at the convention, but only 39 people actually showed up and signed.

The name of the constitutional convention called to address problems faced by the U.S. under the Articles of Confederation was just that - the Constitutional Convention. Participants included George Washington, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and others.

Soon after a person is nominated as a candidate at the national convention. the convention delegates choose a vice-presidential candidate. In recent years, the presidential nominee names the person he wants for his running mate and the convention confirms his choice. The nominee may have made his choice earlier, but announcing the choice at the convention is a courtesy to the convention delegates and make the convention more newsworthy.

This is a trick question. Rhode Island, then under control of the anti-federalist "Country Party" refused to send any delegates to the Constitutional Convention in 1787. Since the only signers of the document were delegates to the convention, no Rhode Islanders ever signed it. Fortunately, when the document was sent to the states to be ratified, Rhode Island did finally vote for it -- though it was the last to do so, and passed it by the narrowest of margins.

The names of the representatives were: Abraham Baldwin, William Few, William Houstoun and William Pierce.

Gouverneur Morris. He penned the final version, as one of the members of the Constitutional Convention's Committee on Style. Alexander Hamilton, another member of the Committee, wrote the names of the states in front of the signatures of the delegates.

Delegates are chosen by state party organizations. The methods vary from state to state, and between the two parties. In primary states, candidates file delegate slates with their petitions of candidacy for the nomination. These delegates are usually people of some reputation in the party, who have declared their support for the candidate. After the primary election is held, some of each candidate's slated delegate picks are named delegates, in some proportion to the votes received by each candidate, either statewide or sometimes in each Congressional district. In caucus states, members of the party meet in each local area, and select delegates to county meetings, which then select delegates to a state meeting, which selects the delegates to the national convention. There are usually rules for sharing the delegates at each level. Each candidate's campaign organization names prospective delegates. Some states have both caucus and primary selection. Since 1984, the Democratic party has seated a number of "superdelegates" to its national convention - these being the party's senior organizational officers and elected officials that are Democrats. As of 2008, this group included all Democrat U.S. Representatives and Senators, Governors, members of the Democratic National Committee, former Presidents and Vice Presidents, and some others. About 20% of all votes at the convention were superdelegates.

They had numbers to represent their names

The national Democrat party disqualified Michigan's delegates to the National Convention as a punishment for Michigan moving their primary election to an earlier date. The other Democrat candidates dropped their names from the ballot, leaving Clinton as the only choice. State political officials are encouraging Democrats to vote for none of the above in an effort to send delegates to the convention in hopes of the national party recognizing them at that time.

A convention is a meeting where the political party names its candidate for presidential election. Running parties hold this convention.

The first step of the presidential election campaign is the announcement of the candidate proclaiming that s/he is going to run for president. In the summer of every presidential election year, political parties in the United States typically conduct national conventions to choose their presidential candidates. At the conventions, the presidential candidates are selected by groups of delegates from each state. After a series of speeches and demonstrations in support of each candidate, the delegates begin to vote, state-by-state, for the candidate of their choice. The first candidate to receive a preset majority number of delegate votes becomes the party's presidential candidate. The candidate selected to run for president then selects a vice presidential candidate. Delegates to the national conventions are selected at the state level, according to rules and formulas determined by each political party's state committee. While these rules and formulas can change from state-to-state and from year-to-year, there remain two methods by which the states choose their delegates to the national conventions: the caucus and the primary.In states holding them, presidential primary elections are open to all registered voters. Just like in general elections, voting is done through a secret ballot. Voters may choose from among all registered candidates and write ins are counted. There are two types of primaries, closed and open. In a closed primary, voters may vote only in the primary of the political party in which they registered. For example, a voter who registered as a Republican can only vote in the Republican primary. In an open primary, registered voters can vote in the primary of either party, but are allowed to vote in only one primary. Most states hold closed primaries. Primary elections also vary in what names appear on their ballots. Most states hold presidential preference primaries, in which the actual presidential candidates' names appear on the ballot. In other states, only the names of convention delegates appear on the ballot. Delegates may state their support for a candidate or declare themselves to be uncommitted. In some states, delegates are bound, or "pledged" to vote for the primary winner in voting at the national convention. In other states some or all delegates are "unpledged," and free to vote for any candidate they wish at the convention. Caucuses are simply meetings, open to all registered voters of the party, at which delegates to the party's national convention are selected. When the caucus begins, the voters in attendance divide themselves into groups according to the candidate they support. The undecided voters congregate into their own group and prepare to be "courted" by supporters of other candidates. Voters in each group are then invited to give speeches supporting their candidate and trying to persuade others to join their group. At the end of the caucus, party organizers count the voters in each candidate's group and calculate how many delegates to the county convention each candidate has won. As in the primaries, the caucus process can produce both pledged and unpledged convention delegates, depending on the party rules of the various states. The Democratic and Republican parties use different methods for determining how many delegates are awarded to, or "pledged" to vote for the various candidates at their national conventions. Democrats use a proportional method. Each candidate is awarded a number of delegates in proportion to their support in the state caucuses or the number of primary votes they won. For example, consider a state with 20 delegates at a democratic convention with three candidates. If candidate "A" received 70% of all caucus and primary votes, candidate "B" 20% and candidate "C" 10%, candidate "A" would get 14 delegates, candidate "B" would get 4 delegates and candidate "C" would get 2 delegates. In the Republican Party, each state chooses either the proportional method or a "winner-take-all" method of awarding delegates. Under the winner-take-all method, the candidate getting the most votes from a state's caucus or primary, gets all of that state's delegates at the national convention.
