This year there will be no Precinct Conventions on Primary Election Day. Instead, Democratic voters from each
precinct will gather at their Senate District Conventions to caucus and choose delegates to the State
Convention this summer.
These Temporary Chairs and Co-Chairs will find and confirm locations for their Senate District Conventions, and make all the other arrangements for those. That includes designating members and Chairs of the various Convention Committees. This is an enormous task and they will be glad to have any help you can give. Contact them at:

Because the DNC did not allow Texas to have another waiver, we’ve seen our last Texas Two-Step of primary and caucus. That means there will be no precinct conventions on the evening of the Texas Primary, March 1 (Super Tuesday). Instead of attending Precinct Conventions on Primary night, you go to your District Convention March 19 to caucus by precincts there.
Senate District Conventions will be held on Saturday, March 19, 2016. The State Convention will be held June 16-18, in San Antonio. Philadelphia hosts the Democratic National Convention the week of July 25.
To those running to be a national delegate, good luck!
