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:

The Texas Democratic Party Rules requires that resolutions shall be printed on the form available on the TDP website, in Appendix A of the rules, or from the County Chair/Senatorial District Chair. We've created an online submission form, that you can fill out here. Each resolution will be distributed to the Senatorial District Chairs, but the benefit of submitting it all in one place is that it's a central location and that the resolutions will be available to the public. Anyone who wishes to submit a resolution can do so through their Senatorial District Chair or through us.
WHO HAS FILED FOR PUBLIC OFFICE? The candidates are posted on our Candidate Filings 2016 page at http://dallasdemocrats.org/elections/380.html, along with the contact information they have given us, including links to websites etc. When candidates first apply for the Primary ballot, we posted them unofficially on the DCDP Twitter page, and also (with known links and some photos of filings) at http://stoutdemblog.blogspot.com/ The officially filed candidates are also posted (without links, but with mailing addresses) at the Secretary of State's website at https://webservices.sos.state.tx.us/candidate-filing/cf-report.aspx
Ballot order for the primary in contested races was determined by a drawing on Tuesday, December 16. That is now shown on the DCDP site and at the Secretary of State site.

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!
