Your party, your priorities

County Convention 2024

What are party conventions?

Party conventions are what they sound like: gatherings of Democrats in defined geographic regions. The purpose of holding a convention is to allow Democrats to discuss and vote on issues that affect the Party, like what should be in our platform, and who should be our presidential nominee.

Aside from party business, conventions are also a major social event: like other professional conferences, party conventions are an opportunity to meet tons of cool people! You’ll get to hang out with Democratic activists; learn about Democratic-aligned businesses and organizations; and find your home in the big tent of Democratic caucuses.

Also, there’s swag!

Delegate seats are limited, so pre-register for convention today.

What happens at county convention?

  • Delegates are the voting body of conventions.
  • Any Democrat who wants to attend county convention can sign up to be a congressional district (CD) delegate.
  • CD delegates select people to represent their districts at the state convention.
  • CD delegates also vote on any proposed platform issues, rules changes, and resolutions that will be sent to the state convention.

All business, all the time is boring, so the TCDP Convention Committee is hard at work finding fun things for delegates to do between sessions.

FAQ

The Texas Democratic Party will publish a form to submit resolutions at the end of February. We’ll update the link when it becomes available.

An email with a preview link will be sent to registered delegates.

Only convention delegates can vote on party issues, so sign up to be a delegate!

TDP will send an email before state convention asking delegates to confirm their presidential preference; you may change your preference at this time.

Delegates for each level of convention are elected. County convention attendees are automatically eligible to serve as state delegates. National delegates will be elected at the state convention.

State delegates will be selected from the county convention registration lists (online and in-person). If you pre-registered for county convention and indicated interest in being a state delegate, you can still be chosen as a state delegate even if you can’t attend county convention.

We encourage pre-registration because it helps the Convention Committee plan accordingly. But on-site registration will be open from 9AM to 10:30AM, so feel free to bring some friends with you!

Contact the Credentials Committee by sending an email to [email protected] with the subject line “Credentials – 2024 Registration” and provide your name and email address in the email body.
