Connecticut Democrats Hold Workshops for Democrats Interested in Becoming Delegates to the 2020 National Convention

The Connecticut Democrats have begun the process of selecting 75 delegates and five alternates to help nominate a Presidential candidate at the Democratic National Convention in July.  As part of that process, they are holding a series of workshops across the state to educate how one becomes a delegate and what is expected of them.
The workshops will be held in Manchester, Bridgeport, Hamden, New London and Hartford. Click here or see below for times and locations. 
“Connecticut Democrats want the process of electing our next President to be as inclusive as possible. We’re mobilizing across the state for 2020 and we look forward to meeting Democrats in all of the Congressional districts,” State Party Chair Nancy Wyman said. 
The delegate workshops are part of the Connecticut Democrat’s 44-page delegate selection plan, adopted by the state party last spring and approved by the Democratic National Committee in December. Delegates will represent every one of the state’s five Congressional districts. 
The process creates opportunities at different levels and is open to all voters who want to participate as Democrats. An application to serve as District and At-Large Delegates can be found on the CT Democrats website. The deadline for submission is May 4 and May 28 respectively. 
The Democratic National Convention will be held in Milwaukee, WI, July 13-16, 2020. For more detail, see the delegate selection plan here.
