After The Precinct Conventions

When your caucus is over Tuesday night, you can go to the Watch Parties listed below and have fun with other Democrats, or just go home and watch the results on TV. (Or you could drop by the party office, where some of us will be answering questions about precinct conventions while we follow the results here.) Needless to say, since those ballots are mostly NOT going to be turned in to the counties until the conventions are over, returns from Texas may be later than Ohio and other states.

Tuesday, March 4: On Friday there will be a Post-Election Analysis of the Texas Primary with our state party Chair and others, sponsored by the Dallas Democratic Forum, but reservations are needed no later than Wednesday.

Friday, March 7:
  • Post-Election Analysis of the Texas Primary with Boyd Richie, Chairman, Texas Democratic Party; Matthew Wilson, Assoc. Professor of Political Science, SMU; and Gromer Jeffers, Dallas Morning News; Moderated by David Griggs, SDEC. Presented by the Dallas Democratic Forum. 2008 Pat./Sust. Members -- Free; 2008 Regular Members -- $20; Non-members -- $30. Forum Membership for 2008 IS NOW DUE and may be paid at this event. RSVP Needed by Wednesday, March 5 to 214-855-7151. (11:30 AM Registration, 12 Noon Program, The Belo Mansion at Olive & Ross Avenues, Dallas)
If you are chosen as chair of your precinct's delegation to the district convention, you will need to get your precinct's paperwork to the party as soon as possible (see the information in the precinct convention packet).

After the primary is over, there will be a lot of volunteer help needed with things like collating and entering the delegate and alternate names on lists, mailing and calling them to remind them of the district conventions, and helping set up the locations and do delegate registration and the other paperwork at those conventions. Call or email your Senate District Convention Temporary Chair (after Tuesday) and offer to help. The list is at this page.
