WISCONSIN STATE CONVENTION
An ALL VIRTUAL State Convention will be held on the evening of Friday, June 12, 2020
Convention business will include limited speeches and reports, as well as the election of Wisconsin’s four DNC members for a four-year term. Other Party business traditionally held at the State Convention, including caucus meetings, platform and resolutions debate, consideration of constitutional changes, and an extensive speaking program, are all postponed until the 2021 State Convention.
Friday, May 22, 2020 (5:00PM): Deadline for County Parties to submit new delegates or make changes to their delegate lists.
Friday, May 29, 2020 (5:00PM): Deadline for delegates to become DPW Members. If folks who have been selected as delegates by their County Parties do not become members by 5/29, they will be bumped down from “delegate” to “guest” status and will not be able to vote in the DNC election.
INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF BROWN COUNTY
To be a Brown County Delegate and to VOTE for DNC Delegates, please REGISTER using the Form at this link by Friday May 22, 2020 (5:00PM):
Or on our website – follow the link “State Convention – Delegate and Register”
Friday, May 22, 2020. 5:00PM is the deadline for County Parties to submit new delegates or make changes to their delegate lists. But our 89 delegate spaces will be filled on a First Come First Served basis so you should submit your registration as early as possible. If you register via the DPW website your registration will be considered when received by the County so it is better to register with the County for earlier consideration.
Friday, May 29, 2020 (5:00PM): Is the deadline for delegates to ensure their membership is current. You will be advised if you need to do this. If folks who have been selected as delegates by their County Parties do not become members by 5/29, they will be bumped down from “delegate” to “guest” status and will not be able to vote in the DNC election. A later registering member will replace them as a delegate.
Our apologies to those unable to take part because of technology issues. Brown County is a strong proponent of “Vote by Mail” and suggested this to the State Party Chair. Our proposal was not accepted.
This has been severely disrupted by the work at home requirements. Some renewal notices are late being sent out by the State Party. Please remember that the State and County Party are the same organization. Online payments to the State and County and checks to the County party are being processed. Checks and forms sent to Madison are being delayed. There is a delay in sending Membership Cards from Madison. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org (preferred) or call/message Frank on 920 445 3758 if you have membership questions.
