Preparing folks for February Delco endorsement convention (or “nominating” convention)
- who are the candidates seeking Dem endorsement?*
- Candidates speaking at January HTDems’ meeting in run up to Feb. endorsement convention
- Candidates holding “meet & greets” (don’t have to be on Committee to attend)
- What does it mean to sign a candidate’s PETITION to run?
- Will this be an in-person convention or a “walk thru”
Only Committee actually participates in/votes in endorsement convention, but readers do sign petitions and want to know who the candidates are, whether rank-choice voting will be used, etc.
A “walk-thru convention” is one in which Committee do not have to sit in a big room for hours on end but, rather, show up during a window of time, enter their votes on the computer. We did this for the ranked-choice voting nomination process in Feb. 2020. There were no contested Dem primaries in 2021 so no Delco endorsement Convention.
*We have done paragraph-long profiles of each candidate, mostly to aid Committee in evaluating, but have included link to those profiles in the newsletter. Really bare-bones: where from, how long in our area, education/occupation, civic activities, maybe mention of family
