HumboldtDems County Convention / Primary Election

HumboldtDems County Convention

Saturday, May 3, 2014, 10:00 – 11:30 AM
French Ford Middle School, 5495 Palisade Dr, Winnemucca, NV 89445

Vote on the 2014 Democratic County Party Platform: The proposed platform for Humboldt County will be heard and discussed at the county convention. You will then have an opportunity to cast your vote for or against it.

Become a County Central Committee Member or Leader: The Central Committee is the governing body of the Democratic Party at the county level. This is your opportunity to play a role in the growth of the party.

Central committee members are elected to a two-year term during every convention. Registered Democrats living in Humboldt county can nominate themselves and request election that day. If you are not present at convention, you must request nomination and election from your county chair at a later date.

Submit and Debate Resolutions:  Here’s a link to a blank Resolution Form you can use to create any resolutions you might like to introduce for debate and adoption.  Adopted Resolutions will be forwarded to the NV State Democratic Party Platform committee.

Become a Delegate to the State Convention: If you wish to attend the state Democratic convention as a delegate in June, you must attend your county convention and be elected as a Delegate. Otherwise, you can attend as an alternate delegate and be seated as an official delegate as space permits.

Commune with Fellow Democrats! It’s not very often we all get together. This is a great opportunity to meet up with old friends and make some new ones as well.
