Because of the current coronovirus pandemic, the DC Democratic State Committee has postponed the April 18th Democratic Party State Convention until this fall.
First, thank you to everyone who applied to be a State Convention delegate.
Second, while the details of the postponed Convention are very much up in the air right now, this summer, we will still need to elect the DC Delegates to the Democratic National Convention. Details of how we're going to do that are also still being worked out. A number of active Ward 6 Democrats are running to represent the District at the DNC. They will need your support and vote.
Third, you still have time submit your Statement of Candidacy to be a National Delegate. The deadline is THIS SATURDAY, March 21. For more details or to submit your Statement of Candidacy, visit https://www.dcdemocraticparty.org/run-for-delegate.
Did you already submit your Statement of Candidacy for a candidate who is no longer running? You can switch your support to a still-viable candidate by submitting a NEW Statement of Candidacy, also by THIS SATURDAY, March 21, at https://www.dcdemocraticparty.org/run-for-delegate.
We will follow up with updates on how we'll vote for DNC National Delegates as they become available, as well as keeping you informed of the reimagined State Convention, campaign events, GOTV opportunities, and Party activities in the District, Virginia, and Maryland.
Additionally, our happy hour with At-Large Councilmemebr Robert White, which was to have taken place Tuesday, March 24, at Mr. Henry's, is cancelled.
If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202.258.5316.

As of Thursday, March 12, Charles Wilson, the Chair of the DC Democratic State Committee, has announced:
"Out of an abundance of caution, especially for our seniors, and following current guidance from the mayor and health officials regarding the coronavirus, the Executive Committee voted to postpone the DC State Convention until October. The extended time period will give us an opportunity for more planning and to secure high-profile speakers.
We are still planning to continue with national delegate voting on April 18th at the Washington Convention Center."
Details about delegate voting will be forthcoming.
We need you to represent Ward 6 at our state convention, Saturday, April 18 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center (801 Mount Vernon Place NW).
