The 1920 Democratic National Convention was held at the Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, California from June 28 - July 6, 1920. It resulted in the nomination of Governor James Cox of Ohio for President and Assistant Secretary of the Navy Franklin Roosevelt of New York for Vice-President.

Former Secretary of State and three-time presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan again vied for the Democratic nomination, but was unable to attain the two-thirds majority needed. The convention also considered and ultimately rejected both Secretary of the Treasury William McAdoo and Attorney General Mitchell Palmer. On the forty-fourth ballot, Governor James Cox of Ohio was nominated for the Presidency.

The platform adopted by the convention supported both the League of Nations and women's suffrage.
