DemDaily: Democratic Convention Deadlines!

January 31, 2020

The 2020 Democratic Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin may not take place for almost six months, but planning is well underway.

If you are an allied organization or media, you may have received this information from the Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) or the Milwaukee Host Committee staff, but to help all, a reminder of the following immediate deadlines.

The Democratic National Convention, which will be held July 13-16, 2020 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is the formal event, every four years, in which Party delegates and members convene to choose their nominees for President and Vice President. 
At the Convention, the Party also adopts the official Democratic Party platform as well as the rules and procedures governing party activities, including the nomination process for presidential candidates in the next election cycle.

Please read through all before you click, so you can make sure you are submitting your application to the appropriate department.
