Michigan Democratic Party 2015 Convention Coming Up Feb. 14; Deadline Jan. 15 to Join MDP In Order to Vote
The Michigan Democratic Party's 2015 Spring State Convention will be held at the Cobo Center in downtown Detroit on Saturday, February 14. At this Convention, we will hear from many great Democratic leaders about how Democrats are fighting to create opportunity for everyone - not just those at the top.
We will elect a Chair and two Vice Chairs. Congressional District parties will caucus to elect their officers earlier in the day.
In order to vote at the State Convention a person (other than precinct delegates, partisan candidates and elected officials) must be a member of the Michigan Democratic Party at least thirty (30) days prior to the State Convention. Membership applications must have been submitted to the MDP by Thursday, January 15, 2015.
For the full convention agenda and information on overnight accommodations, visit the MDP's website: http://www.michigandems.com/convention.
In preparation for that convention, Livingston County Democrats will hold their county convention on Saturday, Jan. 31. We will elect two people from our county to serve on MDP convention committees. To be eligible to vote at our convention, you must be a party member.
