Filing Begins To Be Delegates To National

Today, Monday, April 21, is the first day you can file an application to the Texas Democratic Party to try and become a delegate or alternate to this year's Democratic National Convention in Denver (on August 25 to 28). These have to be filled out and notarized, then hand-delivered or sent by certified mail to the state party in Austin. The form is available on line as a pdf you can print at this page. They have to have them by 5 PM on May 21.

As they point out there, "filling out this form does not guarantee that you will be elected as a Delegate or Alternate to the National Convention. The completed forms will be sent to the respective Presidential candidates who are entitled to a right of review for all prospective National Delegates/Alternates who pledge their support for that candidate." The election of our delegates to Denver will take place at the State Convention June 6 and 7; for more information see this page.
