Raleigh – Today, The Democratic National Committee has approved the North Carolina Democratic Party’s request to both postpone the county and district conventions and move them to virtual platforms in response to the growing COVID-19 pandemic.
Last week, the North Carolina Democratic Party Executive Council met and approved a resolution in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Among other changes, the resolution would move all conventions to a virtual platform, held via North Carolina Democratic Party telecommunications tools, and postpone the conventions to a later date. The full plan is available online HERE. Date changes include:
- All County Conventions scheduled for March 28, 2020 will now be held April 25, 2020.
- All District Conventions scheduled for April 25, 2020 will now be held May 16, 2020.

The Democratic Party as a whole is committed to responsibly responding to this health crisis and the actions of our national party down to our country parties reflect that goal.”
