Here are the convention rules and here is a summary of platform amendments.
Everyone is welcome to attend this convention. We invited everyone who attended the March 2012 Caucus meetings to be county delegates, and those people will be allowed to vote on County Party officers and other business. If you want to know if you are a county delegate, you can email us.
Candidate filing is over, but we will accept nominations from the floor. After voting, we will move to Legislative District meetings to elect new Legislative District Officers and certify the list of state delegates in each district. Those meetings are limited to 20 minutes.
Following Legislative District meetings, we will reconvene to the convention and consider platform amendments. Discussion will be limited to 20 minutes and amendments will not be accepted from the floor.
All in all, we should be done by 1 PM, hopefully. If you have any questions please email us or text or call 801 872 DEMS (3367).
