The 411

WHO

Any individual living in that precinct who has voted in the Democratic Primary Election, whether in Early Voting or on Election Day

WHEN

On Primary Election Day, March 7th, at 7:15pm

WHERE

At your precinct’s polling place

WHAT

A meeting of Democrats who live in a particular precinct to:

  1. Elect the delegates allotted to that precinct for the Senatorial District Convention on March 25th
  2. Adopt resolutions to be submitted to the Senatorial District Convention

HOW

Your precinct chair will tell you the number of delegates apportioned to your precinct. This number is based on votes in your precinct for the Democratic gubernatorial candidate in the 2002 election. The same number of Alternate Delegates must be elected as well. Precinct members who voted in the Democratic Primary are eligible to be nominated as

Delegates to the Senatorial District Convention, even if they are not present at the Precinct Convention. Only those present may vote for nominees.

Resolutions may be submitted in writing by any precinct member present. Participants discuss, amend, table, and/or approve each proposed resolution.
